Police in Svay Rieng province are searching for the driver of a truck that crashed into a motorbike repair shop early yesterday morning, killing the owner and seriously injuring his wife.

Nhanh died at the scene and Sreyneang was rushed to Svay Rieng Provincial Hospital, Narorn said. The driver fled the scene, he added.

“The driver has not been captured yet, but the vehicle was impounded at provincial traffic police office,” Narorn said.
