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.

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