Multiple car collision kills 11 on Indonesia's Java island

Police say a multiple car collision has killed at least 11 people on Indonesia's main Java island.

Police say the brakes likely malfunctioned on a tour bus from Jakarta packed with passengers and it slammed into three cars and four motorbikes before falling into a 10-meter (33-feet) -deep ravine.

Local chief of traffic police Capt. Erik Bangun Prakasa says Sunday's accident at Ciloto village in Cianjur district also left five people in serious condition and 41 others with minor injuries.

Road accidents are common in Indonesia due to poor safety standards and infrastructure.
