Car crash kills three on way to wedding party

Three people were killed in a car accident on Monday evening, and five others injured, while travelling to a wedding reception in Siem Reap province, police said yesterday. Chim Sovann, chief of the provincial traffic police, said there were eight people in the car – which had departed from Banteay Meanchey province – when it overturned.

“Because the driver drove so fast, he could not control his speed when he reached a curve in the road,” he said. According to Sovann, the driver’s father and two nephews, aged 9 and 13, were killed in the crash.

The driver was seriously injured, while the other passengers escaped with only minor injuries, he said, adding that they were all being treated in Siem Reap provincial hospital yesterday. Sovann said he was unsure of the identities of the victims.
