Woman dies in late-night bus crash

A woman was killed and three other passengers seriously injured when a bus and a truck laden with cows collided in Kampong Chhnang province on Sunday.

According to police, the double-deck Angkor Express bus was headed from Phnom Penh to Battambang and Banteay Meanchey provinces when the driver lost control on a turn and veered into a truck coming from the other direction at about midnight. The bus also careered into a tailor’s shop.

During the head-on collision, a woman was thrown from the bus and died instantly.

Another woman sustained a severe knee injury, and two other passengers were also hurt.

All three were taken to the Kampong Chhnang Provincial Hospital.

The police were yet to identify the injured or the deceased.

“We cannot find any things that prove their identities,” district police chief Seung Viseth said. “We found it difficult to help the victims because it rained heavily and it was dark.”
