Three men are dead after they were hit by a bus while riding a motorbike in Kampong Speu’s Phnom Srouch district.
Deputy chief of the provincial traffic police Sem Sorith said the driver of the bus, which belongs to the GST Express company and was carrying several passengers, did not stop after hitting the motorbike, even when police gave a brief chase.
He identified the victims as 19-year-old Chheng Chan, his 22-year-old brother Chheng Hin and their cousin, 22-year-old Von Vuth.
In a separate incident on Tuesday, seven people were killed and 32 were injured when passengers in a truck headed to a wedding in Kampong Cham collided with another truck.
