An Australian widow can be put in jail for six months after allegedly killing a teenage scooter driver in Bali.
Susan Leslie O & Brien, 49, from Sydney, drove a Suzuki at the westernmost tip of Bali, in Jembrana, when she allegedly collided with a 19-year-old Indonesian man Rizki Akbar Putra in August.
The police say that Mrs. O & Brien overtook a truck when she collided with Putra and at the same time was without a permit.
& # 39; I saw his head on the road and ran over him. That was the impact. I saw it and I felt and that is the end, & # 39; told O & # 39; Brien The Daily Telegraph.

Mr. Akbar, who was wearing a helmet, sustained serious injuries and died on the spot.
On Thursday, prosecutors advised to detain O & Brien Brien for six months for one count of negligent driving that caused the death.
The indictment can contain a maximum of six years in prison.
Standing in front of the court, Mrs. O & Brien said she experienced the history repeating after seeing her deceased husband die in a horrible car accident.
& # 39; A few years ago I saw that my husband had an accident. The accident cost my husband's life, & she wrote in a statement read to the court.
& # 39; Eventually the tragic event that I experienced a few years ago, apparently this had to be repeated before my eyes here on the island of Bali, which I love so much. & # 39;
While sitting in the courtroom, she argued for emotional forgiveness from the community and expressed her deep sorrow about the accident.

She said she hopes she can stay in Bali when the trial is over, but strangers are generally deported after being imprisoned in an Indonesian prison.
Last week during her trial, Mrs. O & Brien was forgiven by Mr. Akbar's mother who embraced her when they were both crying in court.
A urine test showed that Mrs. O & # 39; Brien was not under the influence of alcohol or drugs and that the road was in good condition and flat.
Mrs. O & Brien regularly travels to the Indonesian island as part of her charity work to help local children learn to speak English.
Mrs. O & # 39; Brien's trial will continue on November 5.
