“The truck was just evacuated with a crane after plunging into the rice field earlier that day, but they had not moved the truck yet from the location. Other than that, the truck was parked a bit far from the nearest street light, so it was pretty hard to spot it while driving at night.” Wayan said. The man who was scheduled to get married in September has died due to serious injuries sustained from the incident. His body was transported to Karangasem Public Hospital while waiting for the funeral ceremony that is scheduled to start on Monday (26/7) by his family.
