Need for speed begets need for medical care

Three young men got a harsh lesson in road safety on Monday in Pursat town, after their speeding motorbike crashed into an excavator crossing the road.

The three, aged 15 to 22, were apparently driving full throttle down the road when the excavator emerged from a rice paddy, leaving them no time to react.

They were admitted to the provincial hospital and the bike was taken into police custody. Police chalked the incident up to dangerous driving and found no fault with the paddy owner, whose machinery was hit. NOKOWAT
