Rock pile upends drunk driver’s journey home

A pile of rocks left alongside a road under construction in the capital’s Dangkor district proved an insurmountable challenge for a drunk driver in the early hours of yesterday morning.

Police said three mates had left a KTV when the driver took the pile head on, causing the car to flip over.

Thinking on his feet, the driver recruited locals who were massing for a look-see to help him tip the car – still partially atop the pile – back into the upright position. Unfortunately for him, police arrived before he could flee.
