You cant see the motorbike before the accident. But there was probably no indication it was going to turn like that. It looks like they were doing a U turn.

There were two schoolgirls on the motorbike.

Sad for the people involved.

There is another longer video on facebook. They were overtaking motorbike after motorbike as they went along the road. This one did a U turn in front of them. They clearly did not expect it.

They did not stop.

I know from riding a bicycle in Cambodia, people constantly pull out in front of you, and you need to give way to them. In a car or motorbike, the chance of having an accident is great, even if you do everything right.

looks like the lorry saw them at the last minute but why did he pull over to hit them? If he had swerved right instead of left he would have missed them

Lol, it's a pickup truck. Not a lorry.

If the mongoloid had kept driving in a straight line he would have also not hit them.

Fuck that's horrible to watch!
My money would bet the truck driver had a few beers.
Im pretty sure The truck swerved left thinking the moto would see their truck and stop the u-turn. When the moto continued the u-turn the truck couldn't stop in time and tried to swerve left hoping the moto would see them at some point still stop mid u-turn.

These idiot locals don't look while driving. I do not understand why. Those school girls will now if they lived. My head is on a constant swivel here and it has saved me dearly.

It is easy to be wise in hind sight. I suspect they turned suddenly with out giving any indication they were going to turn. If they did indicate, I think he would have missed them.

If they were smart, they would have waited until all vehicles had passed.
