Tragedy averted by helmet in moto crash

A helmet saved a motorbike driver’s life in a head-on collision in Svay Rieng town on Saturday.

Police said a large truck was speeding up to overtake another vehicle when it veered into oncoming traffic, and slammed into the motorbike.

The moto driver received injuries to his face, legs and arms, but would likely have been killed had he not been wearing a helmet, which actually broke in the impact.

The truck driver, as is often the case, abandoned the truck and fled, and is wanted by police.
