Update: price of life

An update on yesterday's accident report in which an Acleda Bank director managed to kill 2 two people as well as cause four accidents. Apparently the victim's families will receive just under 1000 $US. Both Acleda Bank and the local police seems to be getting the idea that this was a serious incident. Two links: DAS and KI.

Update 2: The culprit is fit enough (from what? a severe headache?):

An Acleda Bank manager accused of a series of hit-and-run crashes that left two people dead in Battambang province is due to return to work today, the bank's General Manager In Channy said Sunday. Police allege that Sok Chanrithy, director of Acleda's branches in Battambang and Pailin municipality, was drunk when he crashed his speeding vehicle four times Nov 4. Sok Chanrithy has been on vacation since the alleged incident, In Channy said. The bank will compare Sok Chanrithy’s report on the incident with the police report before deciding what to do about the case, he said. He declined to say whether Sok Chanrithy could be fired. Sok Chanrithy could not be reached for comment.
