A passenger train rear-ended a cargo train in Kampot province yesterday, according to local police.
No one was injured in the crash.
Chief of staff of the district police Chhun Chhoeun said that the trains were going in the same direction when the accident occurred.
“These two trains were going from Phnom Penh to Sihanoukville when the passenger train rear-ended the other,” he said.
Hong Sarann, Boeung Touk commune police chief, said that the accident was caused by the fact that the first train used its brakes abruptly and the second one could not control its speed.
“There was no one injured from the collision. It damaged both trains, but slightly. It dented one carriage and two wheels,” he said.
