Hospital driver kills three, two injured

Phnom Penh traffic police are searching for an ambulance driver from Khem Rany Clinic after he allegedly killed three in a drunken traffic accident in the capital’s Por Sen Chey district on Saturday night.

Por Sen Chey district police chief Yim Saran said the accident occurred at around 8:15pm, right in front of the Choam Chao commune police station.

The ambulance, he said, was speeding when it crashed into a motorbike carrying two people, and another carrying a couple and their young daughter.

The father died at the scene, while the mother and daughter died later at Calmette Hospital, where two other injured passengers are also receiving treatment. After the accident, the driver fled the scene.

“At the site, we found a beer can in the cabin of the ambulance, and we could conclude that the driver, who was drunk, caused the accident,” Saran said.

An official with the Phnom Penh Health Department, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said the clinic could face repercussions.

Khem Rany, the clinic’s owner, could not be reached for comment yesterday.
