Wreck just too gritty for driver of sand truck

In a hit-and-run on Friday, it wasn’t the drunken moto driver who fled. According to police in Kampong Thom’s Stung Sen town, a 32-year old speeding, drunken driver crashed into the back of a truck transporting sand.

The man damaged his motorcycle and sustained serious injuries to both his head and body.

The moto driver was taken to hospital, while the truck driver fled, abandoning his load of sand, which will remain in police custody until claimed. KAMPUCHEA THMEY
