Workers injured: Dozens hurt in garment truck crash

Nearly 30 garment workers were hospitalised early yesterday morning after a truck carrying them to their jobs at Kampong Speu province factories crashed.

“The [27] workers from Sangwoo (Cambodia) Co, Ltd, United Apparel Cambodia Inc. and Winson Int’l Garment (Cambodia) Ltd were injured and sent to the provincial referral hospital,” said Sun Pisey, president of Sangwoo’s Free Trade Union.

The accident occurred when the truck carrying the workers along National Road 4 rear-ended another truck, said Say Seth, deputy police chief in charge of traffic in Samrong Tong district, where the accident occurred.

Neither driver was charged with a crime.

None of the injuries sustained from the crash were life-threatening, Pisey said.

In the first half of 2013, 37 workers were killed in truck accidents, according to the Garment Manufacturers Association of Cambodia.
