Four-year-old boy killed by car in Kratie province

A driver was detained for questioning yesterday over the death of a four-year-old boy outside the Kratie provincial court on Monday.

The 41-year-old suspect, from Kampong Cham province, allegedly struck and killed the boy with his car, police said yesterday.

“I cannot explain this any further, because the suspect has been sent to the provincial court,” Choung Seanghak, chief of Kratie provincial police, said yesterday.

The victim’s father, who works as a clerk at the provincial court, said he had demanded $10,000 compensation. The driver, however, had offered him only $2,000.

No charges have been laid over the incident.
