Cambodian killed, 22 injured in high-speed crash in Thailand

One Cambodian was killed and 22 seriously injured in a high-speed police chase in Thailand on Monday – less than a month after similar incidents claimed the lives of 10 Cambodians.

Vice Director of the Cambodian-Thai border relation office Sek Samorn said yesterday a truck loaded with illegal Cambodian migrant workers hit a tree trunk in the Sa Kaeo province while it was attempting to flee from Thai authorities.

The body of 33-year-old Chim Lourm, who suffered a broken neck and died at the scene, had already been sent back to Cambodia, while the 22 injured were receiving treatment at a hospital in Thailand’s Sa Kaeo province, he said.

On the last weekend of April, 10 Cambodians were killed and 20 otheres injured in two separate incidents when the vehicles they were in crashed while attempting to evade Thai authorities.
