Sorya crash kills one, injures 15

A truck driver was killed yesterday when his vehicle collided with a bus in Kratie’s Chhlong district yesterday, police said.

One Japanese woman – a passenger on the Sorya Transportation Company bus – was seriously injured and rushed to Phnom Penh, while 14 others, including a number of foreign nationals, were slightly injured, said Duong Sothy, district police chief.

Police said the crash appeared to be head-on, and resulted from the bus attempting to pass cars on Route 73.

“We found that the bus veered onto the other side of the road at high speed,” Sothy said. “But we cannot say . . . who is wrong before further investigation.”

Witnesses also said the bus, travelling from Phnom Penh, had been speeding.

Four French nationals, two Dutch, one German and one Swiss were among those treated for minor injuries at a hospital in Kratie.

A Sorya Transportation Company staffer said yesterday they were unaware of the crash.
