A delivery truck fell into the Cengkareng Drain in West Jakarta after crashing into trees on Tuesday.
Kedaung Kali Angke village supervisory non-commissioned officer (Babinsa) Second Sgt. Eko Setiawan said the accident occurred at 10:30 a.m.
Eko said the incident occurred when the truck, which was driven by Afandi, 32, from Kapuk to Jl. Daan Mogot, tried to pass another vehicle using the opposite traffic lane.
“However, when he was trying to pass, the cargo box of the truck got caught by tree branches, which caused the truck to swerve and fall into the Cengkareng Drain right next to the road,” Eko told tribunnews.com.
Despite the truck falling into the river, the driver and his assistant were not injured.
The truck has since been recovered by the West Jakarta Police’s traffic unit.
“There were no injuries,” Eko said. (tru)
