The Mystery of the Joke that Claimed 3 Lives in a Tragic Accident in Nganjuk

Four friends from Ponorogo had a fatal accident that claimed three lives when the car they were in hit a bus on Jalan Raya Nganjuk-Madiun, Selorejo Village, Bagor District, Nganjuk. Before the tragic incident occurred, they had created and shared a joke video about the accident.

On that tragic day, Monday 9 September 2019, their Toyota Innova car with the number plate AE 567 SC was driving from west to east, namely from Madiun to Surabaya. Panji Whisnu Kusuma was in the driver’s seat.

Several short videos related to the accident are circulating on social media. One video shows the four friends joking around in the car before the accident occurred. A female passenger was seen making up and checking herself in the car’s rearview.

In the video, the driver of the car cracks a joke about the accident, saying, “Bar iki nggaweo toko nji engko lek aku ramak-nabrak” (after this, let’s make a story as if I crashed). Ironically, what was said in the video became reality in a short time.

Not long after the video was uploaded, the real accident occurred. Unfortunately, the driver and two passengers, namely Rizki Viko Abdilah and Amalia Hestin Nugraheni, died. Meanwhile, one other passenger, Tohir Rohjana, survived.

Head of Nganjuk Police Traffic Unit, AKP Hegy Renanta, explained that the accident involved an Innova car and a PO Mira bus with the number plate S 7190 US, and occurred at around 10.00 WIB. The accident started when the car driven by Panji was moving from the direction of Madiun. When arriving at the scene, the car is thought to have lost concentration, causing the car to veer to the right.

An accident was inevitable when the car veered to the right, the PO Mira bus came from the opposite direction, namely towards Surabaya. The collision occurred, and the front body of the Innova car was seriously damaged.

Two people died at the scene, and another person died while undergoing treatment at Nganjuk Regional Hospital. The three victims who died were all from Ponorogo, while the two injured victims were car passengers Tohir and bus driver Mira from Magelang.

Deadly Collision at Ngrawah Beach Gunungkidul, Boat Collides with Cliff, Kills a Fisherman

A fishing boat had an accident at Ngrawah Beach, Gunungkidul Regency, on Saturday (14/10/2023) evening, which caused one fisherman to die. The accident was caused by an error in landing the ship due to bad weather. The ship was supposed to land at Ngrenehan Beach but ended up landing incorrectly at Ngrawah Beach, which has rocks and cliffs. As a result, the ship was hit by big waves and crashed into a cliff.

This incident occurred at around 19.00 WIB when the ship was about to land after activities at sea. Bad weather with thick fog reduced visibility, and this made the ship’s tekong (owner) confused, which ultimately resulted in the ship landing on Ngrawah Beach to the east of Ngrenehan Beach, which was actually not a safe location for landing.

Two fishermen were on the boat, namely Surat (62 years), the boat owner, and Sujono (47 years). They tried to jump from the ship and swim to shore when the ship approached the cliff. Unfortunately, one fisherman, Surat, was unsuccessful and drowned because he was unable to swim to shore. Meanwhile, another fisherman, Sujono, survived.

After receiving reports from residents, the Baron Beach Operational Area II Satlinmas Rescue team immediately began searching for victims. About 30 minutes later, the victim was found and evacuated, but unfortunately, the victim had died. The condition of the ship was also seriously damaged as a result of this accident.
