Workers killed in crash

At least two workers died and more than 10  were injured, three seriously, in a traffic accident on Sunday morning in Takeo province.

Ngann Sary, police chief of Takeo’s Bati district, told the Post the accident had occurred about 4:30am when the truck, carrying about 50 garment workers, was hit from behind by another truck after stopping on the roadside to repair a front tyre.

He said two workers were killed in the collision and 13 were injured.

“We have taken the injured workers to hospital for treatment,” Sary said.

“We have also taken the evidence to provincial police for further resolution.”

He said workers had travelled from Phnom Penh for a ceremony with their workmates and the accident occurred while they were returning to the capital.
