More than 20 hurt in Takeo minibus crash

Twenty-three passengers were injured yesterday morning in Takeo province when a minibus burst a tyre and veered uncontrollably off the road, police said.

The accident happened in the province’s Tram Kak district. Nine passengers were seriously injured, but there were no deaths, deputy district police chief Cheng Chantra said.

The minibus had been travelling from Phnom Penh to Kampot province about 9am, he said. Police officials sent all the injured to hospital for treatment.

Cheng Chantra said the driver had been going fast when a back tyre of the minibus blew out, making it difficult to control.
