Careless taxi crosses moto’s T in Koh Pich

Koh Pich again proved itself unkind to motorists (and Phnom Penh drivers again proved themselves unfamiliar with the right of way) early yesterday morning.

Police said a moto was travelling north through an intersection near one of the bridges to Koh Pich, when the taxi blew through the same intersection travelling east, T-boning the moto.

While the rider was only slightly injured, the same could not be said of either vehicle, both of which were impounded until the owners can reach a settlement.
