Luxury timber driver flees scene of crash

The driver of a van loaded with luxury timber fled the scene after crashing into traffic signs at Phnom Penh Autonomous Port on Tuesday.

The incident occurred in Daun Penh district’s Srah Chak commune. Commune police chief Kan Vannak said authorities only discovered the luxury timber after inspecting the scene following the crash.

According to local media, the Battambang-registered van had been transporting the timber from Preah Vihear province when its brakes failed while travelling west on Street 80.

The driver then steered into the traffic signs to stop the van. Traffic police assessed the accident site and impounded the van at Phnom Penh Municipal Police Station pending further investigation.
