According to IDN Times Sumut, the incident happened at Golden City Go-Kart at Golden Prawn in Bengkong, Batam.

Several witnesses at the scene claimed that they saw the unnamed victim driving a go-kart at about 3pm on Wednesday (21 Feb).

Citing Riau Police Commissioner Zahwani Pandra Asyrad, BERITAmediacorp reported that the female victim had driven two rounds in go-kart number 14.

She had steered the vehicle at high speed till she crashed into the barriers of the circuit. The impact threw her helmet off.

A worker on-site who later approached the victim saw that long strands of her hair had gotten entangled to her go-kart, ripping some of them off her head.

It was later discovered that she had failed to wear a hair net or some form of protection as the staff there had advised.

IDN Times Sumut wrote that Golden City Go-Kart staff promptly brought the victim to Budi Kemuliaan Clinic for medical attention.


However, the 33-year-old passed away and was taken to Budi Kemuliaan Hospital instead.

The victim’s body will be transported back to Singapore today (22 Feb).
