One Vietnamese tourist died and over 14 others were injured when the bus carrying them turned over after colliding with a truck in Cambodia’s Kratié Province on March 19, a police officer has confirmed.
At 9:30 am that day, a bus carrying 26 Vietnamese people was traveling in Kratié’s Snoul District when it crashed into a trailer truck going in the opposite direction, Lieutenant Colonel Lam Van Long, a traffic police officer from the southern Vietnamese province of Binh Phuoc said on March 19.
The accident happened when the bus was 7km from the Hoa Lu border gate on the Vietnam-Cambodia border.
The 26 people included two main drivers, a sub-driver, a driver’s assistant, an interpreter, and 21 passengers, who are employees of a farm owned by Loc Ninh Rubber One-Member Co. Ltd. in Binh Phuoc, Long said.
The collision killed the assistant to the driver of the bus on the spot while wounding more than 14 others.
Of the injured victims, four were in critical condition and taken to Cho Ray Hospital in Ho Chi Minh City for treatment, while the others were rushed to two hospitals in Binh Phuoc.
The group was on its way to tour Siem Reap and Phnom Penh, first operated by Ho Chi Minh City-based Thanh Thanh Travel Company, which later sold the operation of the tour to Asian Rong KS, a Cambodian tourist company.
