Extremely lucky drunk driver fails in getaway

A drunk driver’s actions may have inadvertently saved his own life on Sunday in Phnom Penh’s Chamkarmon district. Police said the suspect, 35, was out knocking back beers with his buddies before deciding to drive himself home.

Quickly losing control of the vehicle, he crashed his car into a metal divider, tearing off a 10-metre piece. The chunk of metal ended up by the edge of a nearby canal and ultimately was what prevented the car from falling into the water. The driver immediately attempted to hail a taxi, but police grabbed him on the spot. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
