Truck overturnings are a very common sight in India and looting is something that comes hand-in-hand with such incidents . Most of the incidents can easily be traced back to rash or drunk driving . A similar incident took place in Indonesia a few days back , and this time around the loss was for Kawasaki motor company. A carrier transporting 32 units of Kawasaki Ninja 250 , Mono RR and SL overturned after hitting two other trucks.What led to the whole incident is still pretty much under wraps.
Reports suggest that 6 bikes where stolen from the scene of the incident. But due to the tight harness holding the bikes, most of the others escaped with little or no problems (except minor scratches).Kawasaki has confirmed that almost 30 lakhs worth damage has been caused , pretty low for an accident of this magnitude and considering that the stolen bikes in itself would fetch top of 20 lakhs INR.
Though most other details of the incident is still unknown , An eye witness at the scene claims that he saw the container carrying the Ninja’s about to overtake another parked truck ,when it was hit by an oncoming truck. The weight of the Ninja on-board made it to overturn.
The Indonesian police department has already started investigation of the crime .
