Ngann Sary, police chief of Takeo’s Bati district, told the Post the accident had occurred about 4:30am when the truck, carrying about 50 garment workers, was hit from behind by another truck after stopping on the roadside to repair a front tyre.

He said two workers were killed in the collision and 13 were injured.

“We have taken the injured workers to hospital for treatment,” Sary said.
