Sleepy lorry driver upends rocky payload

Despite a lack of music, there was plenty of both rock and roll on a stretch of National Road 4 in Preah Sihanouk province yesterday when a truck carrying stones overturned.

Police say the 23-year-old driver fell asleep behind the wheel as he made his way through Prey Nop district and his lorry veered and tipped over.

Luckily, the load of boulders didn’t injure anyone and the rig was impounded until legal measures are taken.
