Deadly accident: French family killed in crash

Deadly accident
Three members of a family from France were killed in a road accident on Sunday while holidaying in the northeast, while an accident involving four vehicles left two people dead and six injured in Takeo province, traffic police said yesterday.

The French-Khmer family, two doctors and their son, died in Stung Treng province when their minivan skidded off a road and flipped over in Kbal Romeas commune, Sesan district. The parents – Tang Ly Hong, 40, and Roth Tavy, 40 – and their 10-year-old son, Tang Yanich, died instantly, Khek Serei, director of the province’s traffic accident resolution office said. Five others were injured, including three French-Khmer tourists, and one other man, a friend of the family, was killed.

The injured passengers are being treated at Calmette hospital in Phnom Penh, he said, adding that the cause of the accident was that the driver was speeding on a road he was unfamiliar with.

In Takeo, a blaze erupted on National Road 2 in Kandoeng commune after a BMW ploughed into oncoming traffic, severely damaging two motorbikes and killing their drivers before it hit another car at about 8:30pm on Sunday.

Bati district police chief Chhorn Troeng said the driver of the BMW was drunk and had been speeding. Six more people were injured in the accident.
