Drunken driver flips his car, manages to flee

A drunken driver managed to successfully execute a hit-and-run despite flipping his car over in the capital’s Por Sen Chey district on Tuesday night.

Police said the man had veered into another lane, hitting a man on a moto, before overcorrecting and flipping his truck, which landed on its roof in roadside sewage.

Shaken but only slightly injured, the man managed to crawl through his window and made a swift exit, leaving the injured motorist behind.

The victim is now recovering in hospital, and police are hunting the driver.
