A car accident killed three Cambodians and seriously injured two others and a Thai national in Thailand’s Sakaeo province yesterday.
Sok Veasna, a police officer with the Cambodian Immigration Police Unit, said the car they were driving hit the base of a tree and overturned.
A Thai police report said the car was driven by the Thai national, who was transporting five Cambodian workers from the border to Bangkok. He was apparently going too fast and lost control of the vehicle.
“The wounded were rescued by Thai police and sent to a Sakaeo province hospital to receive treatment,” he said.
Thai and Cambodian authorities are collaborating to repatriate the dead to their families so they can hold funerals.
