Police to investigate high speed timber crash

Mondulkiri provincial authorities are investigating an incident involving a high-speed chase between news reporters and a luxury timber-loaded van in which four people were injured.

Keo Seima district police chief Nin Davan said the incident happened on Thursday in Sre Khtum commune’s Chhneng village.

A Fresh News report said the van driver, who only gave his first name as Rath, was heading to the Vietnamese border when five cars allegedly belonging to police and reporters chased him.

The van then collided with another car before flipping over many times and crashing into a house, injuring its owner and three people in the van. The other cars allegedly fled the scene.
