Truck rams into shop, kills man, injures wife

Police in Svay Rieng province are searching for the driver of a truck that crashed into a motorbike repair shop early yesterday morning, killing the owner and seriously injuring his wife.

As Sim Nhanh, 28, of Chek commune’s Svat village, and his wife, Moa Sreyneang, 25, opened their shop at around 5am, a sand truck veered into the front of the business, Svay Rieng provincial traffic police chief Ouch Narorn said.

Nhanh died at the scene and Sreyneang was rushed to Svay Rieng Provincial Hospital, Narorn said. The driver fled the scene, he added.

“The driver has not been captured yet, but the vehicle was impounded at provincial traffic police office,” Narorn said.
