High-speed collision with bus kills three

Two Thai nationals and one Cambodian were killed on Saturday night when they swerved into oncoming traffic to overtake another car and slammed into a KSO bus driving along national road 6 in Kampong Thom.

A fourth passenger, another Thai, sustained serious injuries.

The crash occurred less than two kilometres from the site of a crash last week between a Capitol Company bus and a police car that left eight dead.

The car in Saturday’s crash collided with the bus at full speed, Stoung district deputy police chief Yorng Sam said, adding that no bus passengers were injured.

KSO could not be reached for comment yesterday.
