Van falls and kills 11-year-old girl

An 11-year-old girl was killed during an unusually violent day on the roads in Kampot province on Sunday.

Eighteen people were also injured in a total of six traffic accidents, traffic police said yesterday.

The 11-year old girl was killed and five others were injured in Teuk Chhou district, police officer Kim Sarom said. 

The girl, Nov Thida, was a passenger in a tourist van that was travelling from Preah Sihanouk province to Kampot when one of the van’s back wheels punctured.

As passengers tried to get out of the van, it tipped and fell on them, killing the girl and injuring five other occupants.  

“The van driver fled after the incident, but we have already been notified of his address,” Kim Sarom said.
