Two drivers died and four passengers were injured in a traffic accident between a bus and a soil truck yesterday morning in Siem Reap.

District deputy police chief Pors Chantha said the drivers died at the scene, while those injured were sent to a private clinic.

“It was a head-on collision between the bus and soil truck. Out of the four injured, two of them were foreigners. All are receiving treatment,” he said.


The accident on National Road 6 involved a Virak Buntham company bus.

“The road was curved, the drivers did not adhere to the right-hand drive rule, and were likely driving fast,” Mr Chantha said.

He added that it was raining at the time of the accident, which could have impaired the drivers’ visibility.
