Hit-and-run suspect’s getaway gets nowhere

A dangerous driver ended up in deep water in Battambang town on Monday after an attempted hit-and-run went badly awry.

According to police, the suspect was driving his car when he crashed into a motorbike, injuring its owner.

Rather than stopping, the suspect attempted to flee the scene. But his getaway was short-lived as a second crash into a nearby pond landed him even deeper in trouble.

The suspect, whose car was trashed, was soon cuffed by police. KOH SANTEPHEAP
