Jabodebek LRT collision at Munjul overpass heard by residents
Jakarta (ANTARA) - Several residents of Cipayung sub-district, East Jakarta, have claimed they heard a loud sound around the time two LRT (Light Rapid Transit) trains collided in the Munjul segment on Monday.
One of the residents, Erbi (24) claimed he heard a "loud bang" around 12:30 p.m. and rushed to the location of the collision where he witnessed smoke emerging from the train.
"There was a noise (of trains colliding), explosions, and screaming. There was smoke coming out, and the surrounding residents were all out. It was the train," he said.
Meanwhile, Isnarti (42), also reported hearing the sound of the collision. "I noticed the sound of the explosion, I thought it was a car or its tire had popped, but it turned out that it was a train crash," she informed.
At the site of the collision, as reported by ANTARA, one train from the LRT circuit was seen on top of another. A giant, orange thick cloth covered the damaged LRT circuit.
Despite the accident, traffic flow on the Jagorawi Highway from both directions was monitored smoothly, officials said. Highway Patrol and Jasa Marga (the toll road company) officers were seen managing traffic around the site.
One of the Light Rapid Trains (LRT) was undergoing the test phase on the Munjul overpass, East Jakarta, officials said.
However, an official informed that the light rail operator was Jabodetabek LRT, not PT LRT Jakarta.
"The crashed one is Jabodebek LRT's train, not ours," head of the corporate secretary division of PT LRT Jakarta, Ira Yuanita, said when contacted.
After the crash, the East Jakarta Fire and Rescue Service (Gulkarmat) immediately dispatched a rescue unit from the Cipayung sector to the location.
Operational section head of the East Jakarta Gulkarmat, Gatot Sulaeman, revealed that the LRT train was in the test phase and there were no passengers on board.
"It is said that the train was being tested, so it was empty, but the team has not been able to get accurate information," Sulaeman added.

ทางรถไฟจาก London Waterloo มาทางทิศตะวันตก ช่วงที่ผ่านสถานี Salisbury นี้ เรียกว่าทางรถไฟสาย West of England Main Line เริ่มจากสถานี Basingstoke ไปสิ้นสุดที่สถานี Exeter St David's รวมระยะทาง 194.67 กม.ครับ ขนาดทาง 1.435 ม. ไม่มีระบบไฟฟ้า จำกัดความเร็ว 90 ไมล์ต่อชั่วโมง (ราว 144 กม./ชม.)
An investigation is underway after two trains crashed in Salisbury. At least 17 people were injured in the collision.
Our reporter Paul Hawkins is at the scene with the latest.
Nobody died because the trains couldn't have been going that fast over a junction. As for the derailing, it's IMPOSSIBLE for the length of the train bar the final car to safely pass without striking the object they claim caused the derailment. The object would have had to move to strike the train not the train striking the object. That's the way physics works. Sounds very suspicious.
