A late-night traffic accident claimed the lives of three Koreans, two Cambodians and a Vietnamese man in Kampong Cham’s Tbong Khmum district on Monday.
District deputy police chief So Savath said the victims were factory workers for the CNKU company.
“They left a restaurant after drinking and drove their car back to the Suong district. Unfortunately, their car hit the back of a truck that was parked on the side of national road 7,” the deputy police chief said.
The Korean and Cambodian men died instantly, and the Vietnamese man died on the way to a nearby hospital, So Savath said.
The Korean men have been identified as Khang Chhun Hun, Chor Siyun and Kim Don Hou.
The Cambodians were identified as Va Chamroeun and Nhes Chorn, and the Vietnamese man as Vin Kong.
Police are searching for the driver of the truck, who they claim fled the scene after his vehicle was struck.
