Workers killed in Kampot car crash

Two labourers were killed in a traffic accident on their way to work in Kampot province on Saturday, though it remained unclear yesterday whether their families would file complaints, authorities said.

Em Phan and Lun Chheun, both 34 and of Taken commune in Kampot’s Chhouk district, were riding in a truck carrying 10 farmers working for Korean-owned J&J International Co, when the vehicle slid down a hill and tipped over, Chhouk district police chief Keo Bunna said.

J&J will likely have to pay the victims’ families, but police have not yet received an official report of the accident, Kampot’s deputy police chief in charge of regulations Em Chhuon said.

“Typically, the company has to compensate the victims’ families in cases like these,” Chhuon explained.

Bunna said that when the families are finished holding funerals for their loved ones, they will discuss payment with company officials, adding: “The authorities will invite them to solve this problem together.”
