Deputy District Police Chief Sok Sol explained that “… the cause of the accident is that two trucks were driving in the same direction in front of the bus and the foremost truck tried to U-turn. The passenger bus came and hit it.”
Furthermore, “We cannot yet determine who is in the right and who is in the wrong, but the police experts will do the assessment later. Our police are using a crane to bring them to the district office.”
