Bali truck driver reportedly has no idea vehicle is on fire while going down highway

Thankfully a certain unobservant truck driver in Bali was not on the road alone.

Indra Prasetya had no idea his white Isuzu truck was on fire and only found out when a number of people stopped him on the highway, according to Merdeka

Prasetya, 21, had been driving from Denpasar to the port of Gilimanuk and was apparently lucky enough not to have his truck explode. 

How could he not notice the flames? Prasetya says his eyes were totally on the road.

“I did not know there was a fire blazing in the truck because I was focused on driving,” he said on Sunday, as quoted by Merdeka.

He admits he did notice some other folks on the road shouting and waving their hands, but says he did not realize that all the commotion was directed at him. 

But eventually in Panghyangan, Jembrana, other motorists on the road finally caught his attention. 

Jembrana Police say they are investigating the incident.
