Ten people were killed and 15 others injured when a truck collided head on Saturday with a packed bus, sending it hurtling into a river on Indonesia's Java island, police said. The accident occurred as the speeding truck changed lanes to miss a pothole in the town of Ngawi in East Java. The truck slammed into the bus hauling 30 people, then plunged into a river near Ngawi, about 520 kilometers (320 miles) east of Jakarta, said local police Capt. Irfan Susanto. Six passengers were killed instantly, and four others, including the bus driver, died in nearby hospitals, he said.
