Car crash
Two British tourists are in serious condition after their luxury car swerved off the road on Wednesday night in Kampot’s Teuk Chhou district, provincial police said yesterday.

Chief of the provincial traffic police Nub Dareth confirmed that Theth Scout, 50, and Clark Boulekos, 40, both men, are being treated for injuries to their heads, legs and hands at the provincial hospital.

“They were driving their car very fast during the night. Their car overturned and flew off the road along a curve in the road in the Trapaing Chrey village,” he said.

He added that the car they were driving, a BMW, was seriously damaged and is being kept at the provincial traffic police headquarters.

“To prevent such traffic accidents in the future, we will put more traffic signs along curved roads and other dangerous roads in Kampot,” he said.

The British embassy declined to comment yesterday.
