Heads butt and rears end in capital three-way

A capital man is recovering in hospital after a nasty headlong collision in Por Sen Chey district on Sunday night.

Police said the man was driving at high speed when he attempted to pass a car and moved into the wrong lane, where a container truck was directly in his path.

After the two vehicles violently collided, a third vehicle, a van, was unable to avoid the ensuing pileup and smashed into the truck from the rear.

All three of the badly damaged vehicles have been taken by police while a settlement is sorted out amongst the involved parties.
