A young woman from Finland, Jenny Jokela, died earlier this week from head injuries following an accident on the motorbike she was riding in Sihanoukville. Miss Jokela, 22, worked at Papayago Guesthouse and had been in Cambodia for several months.
It is believed that Ms Jokela’s moto crashed into a lamppost, and that no other vehicle was involved. According to police officials who attended the scene, Ms Jokela wasn’t wearing a helmet.
This is the latest in a run of similar deaths and injuries involving expats riding bikes without helmets. A few months ago, wellknown British owner of Charley Harpers Guesthouse, Tony James, died in a similar incident.
Ms Jokela’s death is the 43rd reported expat fatality in Cambodia this year, and the 14th in Sihanoukville.
