A man was killed in a boat collision at Pursat province’s Prek Trabek lake, in Kandieng district on Wednesday.
Authorities in Kanhchor commune say that Khlot Houng, 35, fell off his boat when it collided with another owned by Mut Phally, 48.
Liv Senghing, Kandieng district’s police chief, said Houng was riding the boat with his family when they encountered Phally’s craft in a narrow and curvy waterway and were unable to avoid the crash.
