Ice delivery has a melt-down in capital

Ice delivery has a melt-down in capital

Foolishness behind the wheel of an ice truck seriously injured two people in Phnom Penh’s Russey Keo district on Saturday.

Authorities said that the truck suddenly drove forward from a full stop and struck a 20-year-old woman waiting on her motorbike and a 40-year-old man selling fried beef.

Police found that the man behind the wheel was the driver’s assistant, who did not know how to drive, but decided to try it out while the real driver was delivering ice.

The victims were hospitalised and the truck kept in the police office.
