Truck and bus collide, injuring 13

A dozen passengers and a bus driver were injured yesterday when the vehicle they were travelling in collided with a container truck in Kampong Chnnang province’s Boribo district, according to police.

Chea Bunthoeun, provincial traffic police chief, said the Rith Mony company bus and the truck were travelling in opposite directions when the crash occurred, though the cause is unclear.

The injured were rushed to hospital, some in serious condition, but no deaths have been reported, he said.

“We rushed to send them to hospital immediately after the Rith Mony company bus crashed into a container [truck]. We did not know who is at fault, the bus company or the container [truck].”

Rith Mony was one of four bus companies, including Capital, Paramount Angkor Express and GS, that were issued warning letters by the Ministry of Interior last year because they were responsible for the highest number of road fatalities in 2012.
