TANAH GROGOT - A truck loaded with wood that was illegally taken from Kalimantan forests, came crashing down into a river after the bridge it was using suddenly broke. The accident happened yesterday afternoon. The truck with the illegally cut wood eventually ended up ten meters lower, in the Sungai Setui riverbed in the village of Legai, Tanah Grogot district in East Kalimantan.
The driver and two other people in the truck were heavily injured in the accident and were brought to the Panglima Sebaya general hospital in Tanah Grogot. The broken bridge was used as an emergency route between the districts of Batu Kajang and Mauser. The bridge was probably not able to withstand the overloaded truck.
