Road accident: Three dead after car hits tractor

Road accident
Three people, including a three-year-old girl, were killed and eight were seriously injured when a car crashed into their mini-tractor as they travelled to a relative’s wedding in Takeo province on Thursday, officials said yesterday.

“Sreng Vanna, 3, and Sreng Naeb, 60, died at the scene,” Smorng commune police chief in Traing district, Heng Hort, said. “The name of the victim who died in hospital has not been released.”

Police arrested the driver of the car and sent him to the provincial court. A mini-tractor is a makeshift vehicle commonly used as a form of transport in rural areas.

More than 20 people have died on the nation’s roads so far this year, with 1,895 deaths and 4,948 serious injuries last year, according to Ministry of Interior data.
