A Bus Carrying 20 Passengers Failed to Brake, Resulting in a Series of Accidents in South Sulawesi

A tragic story occurred in Barru Regency, South Sulawesi, when a bus carrying around 20 passengers, a box car and a dump truck were involved in a series of accidents. This horrific incident left the boxcar driver injured, reminding us of the importance of safety on the road.

This terrible incident occurred in Ballewe Village, Binuang Village, Barru, on Saturday, October 28. It all started when a truck, which was on its way from Makassar to Parepare, made a risky U-turn maneuver. The truck, with its striking length, rocked back and forth in an attempt to turn around. This situation attracts the attention of other drivers on the road.

Then, a box car and a motorbike rider who were coming from the direction of Parepare, decided to stop and make way for the process of turning the truck around. They take actions that should be safe and responsible. However, while they were waiting, a bus approached from behind with high speed and a lack of attention to the road situation. When the situation is urgent, the bus driver tries to avoid the motorcyclist by maneuvering to the right.

When maneuvering, this bus could not avoid colliding with box cars and trucks that were turning around. This horrific collision caused serious damage to all three vehicles. Despite the horrific circumstances, the good news is that there were no fatalities in this incident. The passengers on the bus, around 20 people, were lucky not to suffer serious injuries.

However, the boxcar driver was not so lucky. Although he survived the incident, he suffered injuries that required medical treatment. After receiving necessary treatment at the hospital, the driver was allowed to go home.

Head of the Barru Police Traffic Unit, AKP Malik, revealed that the bus driver admitted that the accident could not be avoided because he was too late in realizing the situation developing in front of him. As a result, braking efforts are less effective and sudden. As stated by AKP Malik, “He had time to brake, but he braked suddenly. The driver was speaking his language, the brakes didn’t really work.”

This incident should be a reminder to all of us about the importance of road safety. Accidents can happen anytime and anywhere, and can often be avoided by being careful, obeying traffic rules, and paying close attention while driving. While we are fortunate that there were no fatalities in this accident, this incident should remind us all of the importance of maintaining road safety and minimizing risks when driving. Hopefully all parties can learn from this incident and work to prevent similar accidents in the future. Safety is the shared responsibility of all of us.

Marcopolo Ship Loaded with Coconuts and Hundreds of Boxes of Fresh Fish Capsizes After Hitting Corals in Sumenep Waters

Sumenep waters recently witnessed a surprising incident when the cargo ship KM Marcopolo experienced a serious accident. This ship was carrying valuable cargo in the form of coconuts and hundreds of boxes of fresh fish, however, fate said otherwise when the ship hit a reef in the waters of Sadulang Besar Island, Sapeken District, Sumenep.

The accident occurred in the early hours of Sunday, October 29 2023, when the ship was traveling from Pagerungan Kecil Island to Banyuwangi. The ship, which was on its way to carry this valuable cargo, suddenly hit a reef when passing through the strait between Sadulang Kecil Island and Sapeken Island, which is located south of Sadulang Besar. The collision caused the ship to capsize and its cargo to spill into the sea.

Authorized officers immediately responded to this incident. The ship’s captain and five other crew members, along with the ship’s cargo weighing around 10 tons, including coconuts and boxes of fresh fish, were successfully evacuated and secured to another ship that came to help.

According to the Head of Public Relations of the Sumenep Police, AKP Widiarti, “At around 00.00 WIB in the morning, the ship carrying goods departed from Pagerungan Kecil Island to go to Banyuwangi Regency.” However, this incident changed the course of the ship’s journey abruptly and dramatized the cruise experience.

This shipwreck is a reminder to us all of the vulnerabilities faced by ships carrying valuable cargo in dangerous waters. In addition, this also underlines the importance of safety in maritime shipping and vigilance in avoiding risks like this. Hopefully repairs and restoration can be carried out as quickly as possible, so that the KM Marcopolo ship and its cargo can return to normal condition and continue their journey.

PT Natural Artha Resources (NAR) employee suffers serious burns because the truck he was driving caught fire

On Monday, October 30 2023, Tebo Regency Head of Naker, Ali Bato, confirmed that the Labor Inspectorate (wasnaker) had started an investigation regarding the tragic incident involving PT Natural Artha Resources (NAR), a coal mining company.

This case started with a work accident experienced by M Sidik, a resident of Suo-suo Village, Sumay District, Tebo Regency. This incident has left deep wounds in the hearts of the local community.

“The story that happened to M Sidik is truly worrying. In April 2023, the truck he was driving caught fire, causing serious burns,” said Ali Bato, Head of Manpower Division, Tebo Regency.

The Labor Inspectorate has taken action to reveal the truth behind this accident. They have tried twice to call PT NAR for clarification, but unfortunately the company never responded well. Therefore, Wasnaker decided to continue this investigation.

Currently, Sidik himself is still in the process of recovering, although several parts of his body are permanently disabled due to the burns he suffered. The Tebo Regency Department of Industry and Manpower (Disperindagnaker) is trying to ensure that Sidik gets the rights and compensation he should receive from PT NAR.

“The legal process is ongoing, and we hope that PT NAR takes full responsibility for this accident,” stressed Ali Bato.

It is hoped that this investigation will be an important milestone in motivating mining companies to improve safety and welfare standards for their workers. Currently, the people of Tebo Regency, Sidik, and their families are waiting with hope that justice will be served soon, and an official response from PT NAR is something they have been eagerly awaiting.
