Man killed on way to hospital in Preah Vihear

A Man was killed and three others seriously injured on Monday when their tractor was rear-ended while on the way to the hospital in Preah Vihear province’s Yeang commune.

Yoeum Lom, the district’s deputy police chief said Horn Neng, 40, was ill and being sent for treatment when a Toyota car hit them, injuring him and family members Thul Thok, 27, Yi Thei, 37, and Neng Sinut, five.

“The tractor was transporting Horn Neng to the hospital accompanied by his family members when the accident happened,” he said.

He said the driver of the car fled the scene and police have yet to identify him. However, they have the licence plate number which is registered in the capital.

Police said the investigation is ongoing, and the victims are being treated at the provincial referral hospital.
