Brit tourist, 24, dies in horror hit and run crash in Bali after car smashes him off motorbike before fleeing the scene | The Sun

A BRIT tourist has been killed in a hit-and-run in Bali.

The holidaymaker, 24, was riding a motorbike when he was knocked off by a car coming from the opposite direction.

Cops arrested the driver, 54, after he fled the scene on the Singaraja-Kintamani Highway on November 2.

The motorist told police in Bali he carried on driving as he didn't realise he had knocked the Brit off.

He said he had thought he had just "grazed" the holidaymaker after taking a turn too wide.

Head of Traffic Unit for Buleleng Police, AKP Bachtiar Arifin, said: "He thought he was just grazed, because he was positioned from the side.
