Feckless, flirtatious man injures self, passengers

Reckless driving resulted in a catastrophic first impression when a besotted motodop injured himself and his passengers.

Police said the motodop, 24, was drunk when he took a widow, 39, and her two daughters home from a market in Koh Kong province on Sunday.

The driver was too busy flirting with his passenger to pay attention to the road, and crashed into a stationary truck.

The driver broke both arms and sustained a head injury that required hospitalisation in Vietnam. The woman and one of her daughters were also badly injured and sent to hospital. Nokorwat
