Five women died in a crash when the car they were travelling in flipped over this morning in Kampong Thom province’s Stung Sen city.
Sok Sona, deputy police chief of Stung Sen city, today said that all five women died at the scene when their car overturned several times at 4: 20 am on national route 6 in Kampong Thom province.
“They were travelling from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap province. When they arrived at the curved stretch of the road, the car swerved off and flipped over several times due to speeding,” Mr Sona said. “The driver lost control.”
Mr Sona said that the driver was not drunk or sleepy, but the accident occurred because of over-speeding on the curved stretch of the road.
“So far, We have identified three victims and their families already took their bodies from the scene. Now we are looking for other family members to pick up the rest,” he said.
