Blowout goes from bad to worse in Poipet town

Four people were injured when the luxury SUV they were riding in took a tumble into a roadside hole in Poipet town early yesterday morning.

A Chinese national who was travelling in the vehicle said that one of the tyres suffered a blowout, causing the vehicle to swerve off of the road.
