Nine people were killed after a crowded train they were traveling on crashed into an amusement park ride.
Three children and six women died in the horror accident in the Indonesian state of Banten on Tuesday.
According to local media, the open-top minibus — known locally as Odong-Odong — was carrying 20 passengers at the time.
The brightly colored vehicles can often seat around a dozen young children and are often spotted in low-income neighborhoods.
It then crashed into a train after charging through a gateless level crossing.
Serang Traffic Police Chief Tiwi Afrina said: “[The odong-odong] drove from Walantata to Kragilan and drove through a gateless level crossing.
“Then the accident happened between the train and the Odong-Odong.
“Nine people were killed. With 20 passengers, the Odong-Odong certainly exceeded her maximum capacity.”
Surviving passengers – many of them injured – were taken to a nearby hospital for treatment.
The driver of the colorful Odong-Odong escaped unharmed.
According to local reports, he has now been taken into custody for further questioning.
Transportation chiefs have since shut down the “illegal” crossing where the fatal incident occurred.
Transport Ministry spokeswoman Adita Irawat said: “We regret the Odong-Odong accident struck by a train in Kragilan, Serang Regency, Banten.
“We regret the incident that caused the death toll. The team will conduct further investigations with related parties.”
Traffic accidents are commonplace in Indonesia, with a large proportion of them involving railway crossings.
Poor infrastructure and reckless driving have been blamed for the influx of serious incidents.
