Cambodian Prince Injured and Wife Killed in Car Accident

PHNOM PENH – A Cambodian prince was injured and his wife killed after the car in which they were traveling collided with a taxi in the southwest of the country.

Ouk Phalla, aged 39 and wife of Prince Norodom Ranariddh, died of her injuries in a hospital in Preah Sihanouk province, an efe-epa journalist reported on Monday.

Ranariddh, 74, sustained serious injuries in the accident.

The collision occurred on Sunday on a highway in the same province, and involved a taxi striking the prince’s car.

Ouk Phalla was alive when she was taken away by ambulance from the accident site.

Four people in the taxi were reportedly injured.

Ranariddh, a half-brother of current King Norodom Sihamoni, was traveling with his wife to a meeting of his Funcinpec party, according to a Facebook post by the unofficial Royal du Cambodge group.

Ranariddh is president of the royalist party National United Front for an Independent, Neutral, Peaceful and Cooperative Cambodia (Funcinpec).

He served as co-prime minister with current leader Hun Sen from 1993 until he was ousted in 1997.

Ouk Phalla was a well-known Cambodian classical dancer, especially in the 1990s.
