Car wreck kills one, injures 10

One passenger was killed and 10 others, including the driver, injured when their speeding car tumbled down a mountainside in Kratie province on Wednesday morning.

Chhlong district police chief Hang Sokly said the passengers, workers at a cassava plantation in O’Kruch area, were returning home when the accident occurred.

The driver lost control while speeding in Kanhor commune’s Preak Chamlak village, causing the car to run off the road and down the mountain.

Passenger Samrith Borin, 18, was crushed to death when he fell out and the car flipped over on top of him.

Nine others, including the driver, were seriously injured, and one suffered minor injuries.

All were rushed to hospital for treatment.

Police said alcohol was not a factor in the accident.
