Looks like the bus from Sihanoukville to Koh Kong burst a front tyre, probably on the stretch going through the mountains.

Cambodia bus crash injures Western tourists




Dozens of foreign tourists have been injured and one woman has been killed in a bus crash in Cambodia.

The vehicle flipped on its side as it took 46 passengers, including 40 foreign tourists, from the port of Sihanoukville to the Thai border.

Ouk Sopha, head of traffic police in Koh Kong province, said a 23-year old Russian woman who was on the bus had died after being admitted to hospital.

He told reporters that some of the injured were in a serious condition.

Mr Sopha said all the passengers, including six Cambodians, had been taken to hospital.

Police believe the bus driver was driving at speed before the crash and apparently fled the scene soon after.

Traffic accidents are one of the main causes of death Cambodia, killing almost 2,000 people in 2010
