Single Accident in Kulon Progo: Driver Is Drowsy, Car Overturns Into Irrigation Canal

A single accident occurred on Jalan Daendels, Karangsewu Village area, Kapanewon Galur, on Monday afternoon at around 15.50 WIB. This accident involved a car with the number plate AB 1780 EP driven by MF (29), a man from Brosot.

According to information from the Head of the Kulon Progo Police Traffic Unit Gakkum, Ipda Tanto Kurniawan, the accident occurred because MF was sleepy while driving. “The car was traveling from west to east. However, suddenly it swerved to the left of the road,” said Tanto.

When he lost control, MF tried to swerve to the right to avoid the irrigation ditch on the side of the road. However, this attempt failed and the car ended up entering an irrigation canal in an upside-down position. “The car plunged into an irrigation canal and ended up upside down,” he explained.

Luckily, MF survived the accident even though he suffered minor injuries. The car he was driving suffered serious damage, including a broken windshield and left front rim.

After the incident, MF was immediately taken to the Riski Amalia Hospital in Kapanewon Lendah for treatment. “The victim has been taken to hospital for treatment,” added Tanto.

This incident is a reminder for drivers to always ensure that they are in prime physical condition when driving. Ipda Tanto appealed to the public to take a break if they feel tired during the trip. “Make sure your physical condition is safe and fit when driving. Don’t hesitate to pull over and rest if you feel tired,” he concluded.

This incident is an important lesson about the dangers of driving while drowsy and the importance of maintaining vigilance on the road. Hopefully a similar incident will not happen again.

Pilgrim Group Bus Accident on Pandaan-Malang Toll Road, One Killed and Dozens Injured
A tragic accident occurred on the Pandaan-Malang toll road in the early hours of this morning, involving a bus carrying the Wali Lima pilgrimage group. This accident resulted in one person being killed and dozens of others injured.

Head of Traffic Unit for Pasuruan Police, AKP Deni Eko Prasetyo, revealed that the accident occurred because the bus driver experienced microsleep, a condition in which a person falls asleep for a moment without realizing it. “The pilgrimage group’s bus arrived at the crime scene and the driver experienced a microsleep so it hit a wing box truck that was traveling in the left lane in front of it,” explained Deni, as reported by detikJatim.

The victim who died in this incident was a bus driver from PO Jaya Abadi with plate number N 7313 UK. The victim died at the scene due to heavy impact. Meanwhile, the bus driver and 21 other passengers suffered minor injuries. Most of the injured victims underwent outpatient treatment, while several others had to be hospitalized.

The group of bus passengers is known to have come from Bangunrejo, Malang, who were on a pilgrimage.

Pasuruan Police Traffic Traffic Unit Head, Ipda Ahmad Khunaefi, added that the bus hit a wing box truck and pushed it into a ditch. “The bus driver was injured and is still being treated at Sahabat Hospital, Sukorejo, Pasuruan. Meanwhile, no one from the wing box truck was injured,” he explained.

This accident is a reminder of the importance of driving safety, especially for drivers carrying large numbers of passengers. Microsleep can happen to anyone who doesn’t get enough rest, and can have fatal consequences on the road.

The police appealed to drivers, especially those tasked with transporting passengers on long journeys, to ensure good physical condition and not hesitate to rest if they feel tired. Passenger and personal safety must always be the top priority.

With this incident, it is hoped that all parties can be more alert and prioritize safety when on the road. We hope that the injured victim recovers quickly and that similar incidents do not occur again in the future.

Efforts to extinguish the fire at the eucalyptus oil refinery waste warehouse in Bunder Forest, Gunungkidul, are still ongoing. The fire, which has been going on for 17 hours, has not been completely extinguished, even though various efforts have been made by the fire brigade team.

detikJogja’s monitoring of the location on Monday (3/6/2024) at 20.25 WIB showed that two excavators were continuing to try to dig up the pile of eucalyptus oil refinery waste. Firefighters are also still struggling to spray water on fires that are still burning in the warehouse, with thick smoke continuing to rise around the location.

There was a fleet of fire engines from the Jogja City Fire Department and a fire engine belonging to the Gunungkidul Fire Department which also tried to extinguish the fire. The head of the Gunungkidul Damkar UPT, Handoko, explained that extinguishing efforts were hampered by materials in the warehouse consisting of eucalyptus leaves and twigs.

“The problem in this case is that it is like peat land, the fire is in the husk, inside. “It spread from the inside,” explained Handoko to detikJogja at the fire location, Monday night.

Currently, the fire team is trying to break the chain of fire by digging through eucalyptus waste. Handoko also added that limited personnel made this task even more difficult. “There are so many hoards that it’s overwhelming. Personnel are also limited, there are 24 people. We have taken it from Bantul. “The Bantul one returned at around 16.00 WIB,” he added.

Head of the Jogja City Damkarmat Fire Control Operational Section, Mahargyo, revealed that his party had brought in two fire trucks and a command car containing additional equipment to help extinguish the fire.

“While the ones that operate in the city because they have Gunungkidul are still damaged,” said Mahargyo.

It is known that the fire at the Sendang Mole eucalyptus oil factory warehouse in the Bunder forest was reported to have occurred on Monday (3/6) at 04.00 WIB. So far, the Gunungkidul Fire Department has used hundreds of water tanks to extinguish the fire which continues to spread.

Hopefully the extinguishing efforts will soon bear fruit and the fire can be quickly contained. Stay alert and ensure the safety of your surroundings from potential fires.

The fire disaster that destroyed the Babun Najah Islamic Boarding School led by Muhammad Ismi (Abu Madinah) in Doy Village, Ulee Kareng District, Banda Aceh City, caused 12 students to experience shortness of breath. The fire occurred in the early hours of Monday (3/6/2024) at around 00.15 WIB.

DPKP Banda Aceh swiftly deployed seven fire trucks, while five fire trucks from Aceh Besar also helped.

“The extinguishing process lasted until 00.40 WIB, after which cooling efforts were carried out,” said Hidayat. Apart from that, the extinguishing process was also assisted by PLN officers, Ulee Kareng Police, Banda Aceh Police, TNI personnel, ERPA volunteers, and RAPI.

All victims who experienced shortness of breath were taken to the nearest hospital for medical treatment. “From this fire, 12 victims were found with shortness of breath,” said Hidayat.

The fire burned three rooms in the Islamic boarding school. The cause of the fire is still under investigation by the police to determine the exact source of this incident.

This fire disaster is a reminder of the importance of preparedness and an adequate fire fighting system in every educational institution, including Islamic boarding schools. Fire prevention measures, such as regular inspections of electrical installations and training in the use of fire extinguishers for occupants, are very necessary to reduce the risk of fires in the future.

Coconut Fiber Warehouse Burns Again in Banyuwangi, One Truck Scorched by Fire

Another fire occurred in Ami Santoso’s coconut fiber storage warehouse in Mangir Village, Rogojampi District, Monday (3/6). The fire that suddenly broke out at around 14.00 managed to spread quickly, burning down the entire warehouse and a truck parked at the location.

According to the Head of the Banyuwangi Damkarmat Rescue and Evacuation Section, Salam Bikwanto, there were no fatalities in this incident, but one truck was burned. “The fire was quite big and quickly spread throughout the warehouse. We were forced to deploy nine fire engines from three sectors and a fire engine from Mako Damkarmat, as well as one fire engine from the company to extinguish the fire,” he said.

As of 17.40, the fire had still not been completely extinguished. Officers from various agencies, including members of the Rogojampi Police, Rogojampi Koramil, Damkarmat officers, and a number of warehouse employees, are still struggling to extinguish the fire which is difficult to contain because the flammable coconut fiber has completely burned out.

“We have sprayed around 30 water tanks to extinguish the fire. The fire was difficult to extinguish because it had burned all the coconut fiber in the warehouse and formed a volcano,” added Salam.

Meanwhile, Rogojampi Police Chief, Kompil Imron, revealed that the exact cause of the fire could not yet be ascertained. “The exact cause is still under our investigation,” he said when contacted by Jawa Pos Radar Genteng.

This incident adds to the list of fires that occurred in coconut fiber warehouses in the area in a short period of time. Officials and local residents are advised to remain alert and increase fire prevention efforts in storage warehouse areas.
