Man dies in Sisophon traffic accident

One man died and seven people were injured in a car accident on Tuesday morning in Banteay Meanchey’s Sisophon district. Chhoeum Sophun, chief of the provincial traffic police office, said that the driver of the vehicle – which crashed into a rice field – had only learnt to drive a month before the group made a trip from Mongkol Borei district for a wedding in Nimit commune, O’Chrou district. While travelling “very fast” and trying to overtake a motorbike, the car veered off the road and overturned. Lim Sok, aged 56, later died at a provincial hospital.
