Man sought in fatal boat accident

Authorities in Siem Reap are investigating the collision of two boats responsible for killing a man on Monday, the victim’s family said.

Lor Sak, 26, of Chi Kraeng district, was operating a boat with 11 other passengers headed to Dam 78, according to his cousin, Korn Pot, 39.

Upon nearing Anlong Samnor commune, a boat loaded with wood crashed into them from the opposite direction, killing Lor instantly, Pot continued.

“We were shocked by the death of my cousin, so the suspect managed to escape into another creek,” Pot said.

The suspect operating the second boat looked about 30 years old, with dark skin and was wearing a yellow shirt, the victim’s family told police.

So far, no one has been arrested, said Srey So Un, district police chief in charge of traffic.

“Police have not yet located the suspect. But our forces are patrolling the river and monitoring the creeks for the suspect’s boat,” Srey said.
