Irishman found dead after crash

A 45-year-old Irish national was killed in a crash with a car while riding his motorbike along National Road 3 in Kandal province yesterday morning, according to police.

Men Chanrith, Kandal Stung district police chief, said that the victim’s identity had not yet been determined as he was not carrying any identifying documents when he was killed.

However, Chanrith said that about 15 minutes after the crash two women, presumably friends of the victim, riding another motorbike pulled up at the site of the crash and began to cry and shout the name “Kevin”.

Sor Sreynuch, 28, who came forward as the victim’s wife, only confirmed the victim’s first name to police, and said he was an Irish citizen and living in Phnom Penh’s Daun Penh district.

Prior to the incident they had visited Sreynuch’s parents in Kandal Stung district for the weekend, but the victim had headed back to the capital ahead of her because he was due back at work.

The suspect escaped. Police said that while they did not believe the impact to have been a serious one, the victim was not wearing a helmet.
