Police officer dragged in a hit-and-run accident

A police officer in the capital’s Por Sen Chey district became the latest hit-and-run victim on Tuesday.

The officer, 47, was on a motorbike at about 11pm when a speeding truck tried to overtake him. Instead of passing cleanly, the truck clipped the bike, after swerving to avoid oncoming traffic.

The moto then became caught under the truck and was dragged more than 10 metres.

The truck driver only sped up when police arrived, leaving the helpless victim to be sent to a nearby medical clinic. KOH SANTEPHEAP
