According to information from witnesses, the incident occurred on Thursday morning (21/1) at 4:30am. The driver, Subagioc, was taking a passenger named Suzah in an MPV (registration number DK 1442 AB) to her temporary residence in Guest House Banjar Sala from Ubud.

Before they managed to arrive at the destination, the driver turned its wheel to the left without noticing that the tire was on the edge of the road.

The tire slid, causing the car to roll over into the rice field.

Both the driver and the passenger survived the accident without injury.
