A group of 27 people on a staff outing were injured yesterday when their private bus came off the road on its way down Bokor Mountain in Kampot province.
Provincial police chief Mao Chanmathurith said the injured included the driver and his assistant.
“Staff from a private company had been to visit Bokor Mountain and were on their way back to Preah Sihanouk province,” Mr Chanmathurith said.
“Unfortunately the brakes of their bus failed as it was descending the mountain.” 
He said six of the victims were injured seriously and were sent to the provincial hospital. 
Mr Chanmathurith said the bus fell about 20 to 30 metres from the road before running into the tree. 
“They were lucky because a big tree stopped the bus from falling further,” he said.
“If the tree wasn’t there they may not have survived.”
