A melon caused a Cambodian truck to overturn, killing one person and injuring 30, officials said Thursday.

The melon rolled under the truck's brake pedal and the vehicle overturned as the driver tried to unjam it, they said.

The overloaded truck, which crashed Wednesday, was carrying workers, fruits and vegetables from a local market in the remote and hilly northeastern province of Mondulkiri.

"The driver could not use the brake to slow the truck," policeman Ieng Tum told Reuters by telephone.

"The truck overturned as the driver was trying to get the fruit out from under the pedal brake," he said.
