Phnom Penh traffic police are searching for a man involved in a hit-and-run collision between his BMW and a Toyota Corolla that left two injured in Chamkarmon district in the wee hours of yesterday morning.

According to municipal traffic police chief Chev Hak, the accident took place at about 12:03am in Boeung Keng Kang I commune.

“The BMW hit the Corolla . . . When our expert authorities arrived, the owner of the BMW had already run and we are now investigating to find him,” Hak confirmed, adding that one passenger in the Corolla sustained serious injuries while the other minor.
