Driver arrested after crash injures workers

A Caltex truck collided head-on with a truck loaded with factory workers in Kampong Speu’s Kaheng commune yesterday morning, injuring 10 of the 35 aboard.

The workers, who were on their way to Samrong Tong district, had been sent to several hospitals, deputy district police chief Nuth Nouen said.

Five people were seriously injured, including the workers’ driver.

Nouen said police had arrested the driver of the petrol truck.

The 50-year-old driver was only slightly injured and had tried to escape.

Nouen said the accident occurred because the arrested driver was speeding and had wanted to “overtake a container truck”.

Deputy provincial traffic police chief Sim Sovanty said the police would contact Caltex to see whether compensation for the victims could be arranged.
