Exciting Incident at Paragon Mall Semarang. Honda Brio Exhibition Car Speeds and Hits Visitors!

A shocking incident occurred at Paragon Mall Semarang on Saturday (4/11) when a yellow Honda Brio car which was on display hit a number of visitors. This incident created tension among visitors who were enjoying the bustle of the busy shopping center.

This incident occurred at around 21:00 WIB when the Honda Brio car was running, which was originally driven by a car salesman at the exhibition. However, after an inspection by the Central Semarang Police Chief, Commissioner Indra Romantika, it was discovered that the car was being used by a marketing staff member to explain the vehicle’s features to visitors.

Unfortunately, the car drove by itself and hit two escalators and several visitors. Luckily, no one was seriously injured in this incident.

Police Commissioner Indra explained, “The car was in the hand brake position and engaged in gear. However, the car moved because it was on a slippery floor, and it seemed the driver was unable to control it.”

The driver, who is a marketing staff member, has been detained by the police and taken to the Semarang Police for further investigation regarding the incident.

The Director of Paragon Mall Semarang explained that dealers who display their vehicles in the mall are not allowed to start the vehicle’s engine. To test a vehicle, the dealer must prepare a test car in the mall parking area.

The mall follows the Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) that apply to car shows, where exhibition vehicles are usually placed in special locations in the mall.

The employee involved in this incident has been arrested and is currently undergoing examination by the authorities. Finally, the dealer and the mall agreed to take full responsibility for this incident after resolving the problems that arose.

Car and contents of grocery store engulfed in fire in Jombang, East Java. Losses of up to hundreds of millions of Rupiah

Jombang, East Java, witnessed a frightening incident on Monday night (6/11/2023) when a grocery store was hit by a red rooster. This fire destroyed the entire contents of the shop, including a car inside.

The fire burned fiercely and consumed everything in the shop. Unfortunately, local residents could not provide help because the shop door owned by Mas’ud (62), the shop owner, was locked very tightly, so no one could enter.

However, news about this fire reached the Mojoagung Fire Department (Damkar) officers. They responded quickly and arrived at the scene. Firefighters dismantled the shop door so they could spray water inside. Only after about 2 hours, precisely in the early hours of Tuesday (7/11/2023), the fire was successfully extinguished.

Eko Agus Setiawan, a Mojoagung Damkar officer, said, “The entire contents of the shop were on fire, there was even a car inside. We had difficulty accessing because the shop door was locked.”

The exact cause of the fire is still unknown. However, based on eyewitness testimony, the fire is thought to have started from a short circuit in the electrical current at the CCTV cable plug.

Police Commissioner Bambang Setiyobudi, Mojoagung Police Chief, also explained, “The fire is thought to have started from the CCTV cable because the fire started from the east corner, near the electrical cable plug that leads to the CCTV.”

Although this incident fortunately did not result in any fatalities, the shop owner had to feel the significant impact, with losses reaching hundreds of millions of rupiah.
