A PASSENGER train slammed into a mini-van on Indonesia's Java island today, killing 12 people and seriously injuring another, a radio report said.
The collision occurred near Padaharja village in Central Java, about 200km south-west of Jakarta, Captain M Sahri was quoted by radio Elshinta as saying.
"The car passed the crossing which had no gate, then the train ploughed into it, splitting it in two," Sahri said. "One part of the car was dragged along for 50 metres across the tracks."
The victims were on their way home after attending a graduation ceremony at a nearby town, he said. The train was travelling from Jakarta to Semarang in Central Java.
