Siem Reap driver admits to fatal road accident

A driver who allegedly crashed his car into a motorbike, killing a family of four, and then fled in Siem Reap’s Puok district was arrested and sent to the provincial police station on Thursday.

Tep Pumsen, Puok district police chief, said the suspect, Raksmey Sereysen, 28, had at first denied he was the driver in the fatal crash on Wednesday, but later admitted to committing the offence.

He was sent to the provincial police for questioning. Sok Sen, 34, of Siem Reap town, was riding his motorbike with his wife and two sons, aged three and five, when a car driven by Sereysen came from the opposite direction and crashed into them. All four died on the spot.
