Following mass uproar, WL has been sent to jail while police are conducting further investigation into the accident. The deadly car crash saw Kuswanto, 41, killed, while his wife, Srikanti, 41 was seriously injured along with Mujianto, 44, a seller of a milk based energy drink.
WL, 24, who was earlier under medical treatment at Bhayangkara hospital in East Java is now in jail at the Surabaya Police penitentiary. It was only after detailed inspection which included identification, finger printing and form filling that WL was allowed to leave the hospital to be transferred to prison.
Eyewitnesses claim that the Lamborghini driven by WL was speeding prior to it losing control and hitting the vendor stall and people standing around it. CCTV footage has also been inspected which also indicates a red Ferrari along the same route as the Lamborghini.
Apparently the two cars were involved in a race of speed along the route. Eyewitnesses state that they saw the two sportscars at around 5 am near the KFC outlet, just 500 meters from the scene of the accident while they state that drivers revved up their engines at 5.20 am shortly after which the accident occurred.
The police have identified the Ferrari driver as Bambang while CCTV footage also shows that the Ferrari stopped for a while at the intersection following the accident but then went on along its way. Bambang has since been summoned for questioning as has been indicated by spokesperson for Surabaya Police traffic unit Adhika Ginanjar Widhisana.
