Commuter train hits passenger bus in Indonesia; 14 dead
JAKARTA, INDONESIA: Police say a commuter train slammed into a passenger minibus at a railroad crossing in Indonesia's capital, killing at least 14 people and seriously injuring 10 others.
Tambora neighborhood police chief Wirdhanto says the bus driver allegedly ignored the warning signals when he crossed the tracks and was rammed by the train in western Jakarta on Sunday.
Wirdhanto, who like many Indonesians uses only one name, says 13 people in the minibus were killed instantly and another died in a hospital.
He says the train was traveling from Jakarta to the neighboring town of Bogor with eight cars, and all train signals were working at the time of the crash.
