Truck hits minibus, driver flees

Police in Tbong Khmum province are looking for a truck driver who crashed into a minibus on National Road 11 on Saturday morning, injuring 12 people.

Muth Vuthy, chief of public order in Tbong Khmum district, said that the truck – which was carrying a load of stones – was speeding when it crashed into the minibus with 12 people inside.

According to Vuthy, the truck’s steering wheel malfunctioned at high speed and the truck driver lost control of his vehicle.

Five people suffered serious injuries, including an 11-year-old girl. The other seven had light injuries. All were sent to a referral hospital.

The uninjured truck driver fled the scene and is being sought by police, Vuthy said.
