'Ojek' driver's leg amputated after being hit by motorist
The Jakarta Post
Tiara Ayu Fauziah, 24, who is alleged to have hit an app-based ojek (motorcycle taxi) driver with her car, will cover all the medical expenses of the victim, a police officer has said.
Mohammad Nur Irfan, 38, the ojek driver, had to have his left leg amputated after the accident, tribunnews.com reported.
"It was the suspect's own [decision]. However, the case will go on. It may only mitigate her [punishment]," said Jakarta Police Traffic Directorate chief Sr. Comr. Halim Pagarra.
He said the suspect had apologized to Irfan's family, but Halim ensured that the criminal investigation against her would continue.
The collision occurred on Monday night on Jl. Hayam Wuruk, Central Jakarta, near Harmoni.
The suspect is being charged under Article 310 of Law No. 22/ 2009 on traffic and land transportation, which carries a maximum punishment of five years in prison.
The suspect, however, is currently not detained. (fac)
