Policeman dies after jumping from car

A police officer died after jumping out of his vehicle during a chase in Pursat province at the weekend. Ry Vuthy, a 41-year-old anti-drug trafficking officer, and his colleague had tried to overtake a truck which they suspected of containing luxury timber in Tnort Chum commune, Krakor district, on Saturday.

During the manoeuvre, the truck crashed into the car, said Hang Savun, Tnort Chum police chief. Ry Vuthy then opened the door of his car and jumped out, breaking both his legs. Sarun Chanthy, provincial police chief, said that Ry Vuthy was initially sent to Pursat provincial hospital due to his serious condition. He was then transported to Battambang hospital on Sunday but died on the way.
