One killed in drunk driving incident

A Nigerian national is slated to be sent to court today following an alleged drunk driving accident that killed one, seriously injured three others and damaged five motorbikes in Sen Sok district yesterday.

Police have completed their questioning of the suspect, said Sem Kunthear, the deputy director for the Phnom Penh Municipal Traffic Bureau.

“We have already questioned the suspect and we will send him to court within the day,” he said, adding that he was unable to provide the name of the suspect yesterday. “He was very drunk.” Kunthear added.

The suspect reportedly was driving recklessly along a road in Penh Thmey commune. His car slammed into a group of vehicles, including a tuk-tuk, in which one woman died. After the collision, the driver veered into another motorbike.

The victim, Yi Sreyamch, 26, was a vegetable vendor who lived in Sen Sok district. Her brother-in-law, Vun Vor was among the injured, along with Prak Visal, a staffer at the Blue Zone club and Kim Sopheak, who worked for Visal, Kunthear said.
