JAKARTADAILY.ID - A vehicle convoy carrying the entourage of Army Chief of Staff General Dudung Abdurachman had an accident during a visit to Papua.

One TNI soldier and a reporter for Metro TV died in the incident. The victims who perished in the incident were Second Lieutenant Cpm I Kadek Adi Suharyana S.H. and Metro TV contributor Roi Dorsono Rahel.

The Head of the Army Information Service, Brigadier General Tatang Subarna, said Roi Dorsono Rahel died after being treated at the hospital due to bleeding in the head.

"Roi Dorsono Rahel, a Metro TV contributor, ultimately breathed his last after being treated at the hospital due to bleeding in the head," he said in an official statement on Tuesday, April 12, 2022.

Chronology of Events

Tatang said that when crossing kilometer 62 from Merauke towards Sota with a vehicle speed of 60 Km/hour, the car the victim was traveling in came out of the right side of the road, so the driver could not control the vehicle.

Then the vehicle swerved and overturned. It is suspected that the driver, who is also a member of the TNI, fell asleep.

When the car overturned, the driver — Prada Adi Febrian Napitupulu, Second Lieutenant Cpm Kadek Adi Suhardiyana, and Roi Dorsono Rahel were thrown out of the vehicle.

"They then suffered serious injuries. While two other people, Mr. Laurens Bawotong and Mr. Aldo Waryaan, were still in the vehicle, both suffered minor injuries," he said.

He said the victim was then rushed to Bunda Pengharapan Hospital for first aid and then transferred to Merauke Hospital, which has more equipment.

"The TNI-AD would like to express its deep concerns and condolences for the death of Br. Roi Dorsono Rahel and hopes that the other injured victims can be treated as best as they could in the hospital," he said.
