Drunk cabbie careens into bus, road barrier

A drunken taxicab driver was a virtual pinball on Monday, bouncing his vehicle off a parked bus and into a road barrier in Phnom Penh’s Sen Sok district, injuring himself and causing property damage.

The driver, 55, was driving home from a rowdy wedding ceremony when he lost control of his taxi, hitting the bus then speeding up into a road barrier.

The man was sent to hospital, and police say that they will work out any compensation needed for the road barrier, which belongs to the state.
