Speeding youth lack all respect for elders

Speeding youth lack all respect for elders

Two capital youths may be rethinking their fast-paced lifestyle after ploughing into an elderly rider at an intersection in Tonle Bassac commune on Sunday.

Gunning it through the junction, the young men collided with a lone man on a moped.

The driver of the offending ride obviously didn’t hold his injured friend in very high esteem, deciding to keep on going and flee the scene, leaving his pal behind to share an ambulance with their victim.

Officers showed up to sort out the destruction at the scene, and impounded both motorbikes at the police station.
