Sleepy truck driver takes a $220 dive

Sleepy truck driver takes a $220 dive

Choosing a less than ideal spot to nap on Wednesday, a trucker ended up paying compensation to a boxer who rear-ended his rig with a motorbike.

After stopping the lorry in the middle of a capital street in Boeung Tompun commune for some shut eye, the truck was crashed into by the 17-year-old pugilist, who was injured in the crash.

The final bell rang on the case, however, when the drowsy driver agreed to give $220 to the victim for treatment.
