11 killed in bus accident in Indonesia |

Jakarta: Eleven people died and 53 were injured in a bus accident while returning from a tourist destination in Indonesia. The bus carrying about 60 students and teachers from the Java island town of Dipok to the famous tourist destination of Lembang was involved in the accident.

The accident occurred when the bus went out of control due to brake failure and rammed into cars and bikes. Nine students, one teacher and one biker died in the accident. The injured were admitted to the hospital.

Such road accidents are not uncommon in Indonesia, where the mountainous terrain and inadequate road lighting contribute to accidents.

Three years ago, 29 people died in a school bus accident. In another accident in 2019, 35 people died when a bus fell into a ravine.
