Conquer inner fear, push it to the limit!

5,000 riels for a life

with one comment

I was deeply sad to witness an accident on my way back to work around 1:20 PM I am not sure I could express my emotion or be able to give you the image of the scense but I’ll do my best.

On a stop light turn blue a young man driving his motor on direction of Olympic stadium to Royal Palace shuddenly he saw the polices waiting on the otherside of the street (Monivong) wanted to stop him (his motor didn’t wear glasses) he began to speed up when on the opposite side there was a motor drive by a school girl and her female friend. The girl was tried to pass a car on the right hand side.

In just a second both motors positioned in the middle of the street where the accident occured where all passengers fall down on the street; about the card that the girl passed was immediately hit the break and it right wheel stop an inch from the girl’s motor back wheel I am not quiet sure if it front light was destroy or not as I changed my focus to the result of the accident.

What left on the scense? the man and the girl drivers was lightly injured BUT there was a body of the girl seating behind her friend still laid down on the street; her leg and hand was shocked. She was in a fatal condition as her head was hit hardly on the street.

Protection both motor drivers got their helmet on; but the girl seat behind was not although she did wear a mask to protect her health; but helmet should have been use instead.

I’m so sad really reallysad all of this could have not happen if the young man accepted penalty from the police then the lost is just 5,000 Riels (max) instead of the life of an innocense.
