3 Taiwanese tourists badly injured in Cambodia traffic accident

Eight Taiwanese tourists were injured, including three seriously, in a traffic accident in Phnom Penh, Cambodia on Thursday, a local travel agency said.

The injured are being treated at a Phnom Penh hospital.

Lion Travel said the bus carrying the 11-member Taiwan tour group was traveling from Angkor Wat to Phnom Penh when the accident took place at 11:30 a.m.

The bus skidded and overturned after trying to avoid a motorcyclist who was apparently driving the wrong way.

The injured included the tour group leader, surnamed Wang, who suffered minor bruises.

The group left Taiwan for Cambodia on Nov. 7 for a five-day tour. All except the seriously injured will return as scheduled on Friday.

Arrangements for the treatment and return of the hospitalized Taiwanese tourists are being made, Lion Travel said.
