Anti-drugs officer dies in car crash

A captain in the Ministry of Interior’s Anti-Drug Department was killed in a traffic accident on Monday that injured three others in Stung Treng province, police officials said yesterday.

Mok Sarin, Thala Barivat district chief, confirmed the death of Phnom Penh native Captain Moeung Vuthy, 40, but had no information on the identity of the three injured men.

According to witnesses, the car departed from Preah Romkil commune and veered off into a 12-metre-deep canal after swerving away from an oncoming vehicle, Sarin told the Post yesterday.

Vuthy died at the scene while two of the men suffered serious injuries and a fourth sustained minor injuries.

Rav Vongdoeun, a provincial deputy police chief, said yesterday that the three injured men as well as with Vuthy’s body had been sent back to the capital.

The Ministry of Interior’s anti-drug department could not be reached for comment.
