Car crash kills two, injures five

A reporter and a Red Cross official were killed and another five people injured in a car crash late yesterday afternoon as they travelled to a Red Cross flood relief event headlined by the prime minister’s wife in Battambang province.

Ty Uy Song, a reporter from Koh Santepheap newspaper, and Sok Piseth, a Red Cross official from City Hall, died at the scene in Moung Russey district, Cambodian News Channel reporter Nann Samnang told the Post.

“We travelled there to cover the president of the Red Cross, Bun Rany, who was to distribute aid to victims from flooding [on Thursday],” said Samnang, who had been in another vehicle.

Provincial traffic police chief Sath Kimsan confirmed that the accident caused two deaths and five injuries, but could offer no details of the accident itself.

Those injured included Ouk Bunnara, a cameraman from Hang Meas television; Sroy Nika, a reporter from Rasmey Kampuchea newspaper; and three unidentified City Hall officials, Samnang said.
