Lexus wrecked but no deaths in street race

Getting behind the wheel of any car can turn some perfectly sane men into semi-suicidal maniacs, but when that vehicle is a Lexus, the effect seems to be doubled.

Such was the case yesterday morning when two of the upmarket SUVs were racing each other southward along Phnom Penh’s Monivong Boulevard, only for one to crash at a traffic light, destroying six street barriers.

The Lexus 350 was pretty much written off, but the driver, who exited the car through one of its windows, was uninjured, and took a tuk-tuk home.
