Ashes bring bad luck, bloody traffic accident

Two women and a man were injured this weekend in a Kampong Speu traffic accident, but a fourth “participant” is being blamed by cops.

Police said the accident occurred when a local farmer carrying the ashes of a relative to the pagoda in Boribou district made a left without giving a signal.

Two women riding alongside in their car smashed into the man as he turned in front of them. All three were sent to hospital. So who’s to blame? Police are putting the onus on the ashes, which they say brought misfortune to their carrier. Nokorwat
