Crash kills woman, baby

A baby girl and a middle-aged woman were killed and five people seriously injured in a traffic accident on Wednesday on national road No 5 in Banteay Meanchey’s Nimet 1 village, Poipet town, provincial authorities said yesterday.

Deputy Poipet town police chief Nin Sarin said that two trucks were driving along the national road when they were overtaken by an SUV.

A cement truck travelling in the opposite direction collided with the SUV, dragging it for about 30 metres and smashing into three other vehicles.

Authorities took two hours to reach and assist the victims, who were trapped inside their vehicles, due to the distance of the crash site from help.
