Kampong Speu: At 10:45 AM, February 23, 2019, there was a traffic accident on National Highway 4, KM 50, located in Phnom Srok village, Sangkat Rummeng Chbar Morn Kampong Speu.

A yellow FUSO truck with number plate, Phnom Penh 3A .6127 hit a motorcycle carrying a family of four.

Police said that the truck was traveling from the west over a narrow bridge, when it hit Wa Wut, 31, Aun Pheas, 32, Wath Vantha, a 6-year-old girl, and a one year old boy.

The family were from Prey Veng Province but worked in a Kampog Speu factory.
