Indonesia commuter train in deadly collision (Video)

Indonesia commuter train in deadly collision :A commuter train has collided with a vehicle in Indonesia’s capital, Jakarta, causing parts of the train to burst into flames.

The incident happened in south Jakarta. The vehicle, said to be a truck, was carrying liquefied gas canisters, reports say.

At least four people were killed in the crash, including someone working for the train company, officials said.

Pictures from the scene showed black smoke billowing from the crash site.

The collision happened at 11:21 local time (04:21 GMT) at a train crossing in Bintaro Permai, police say.

At least two people have been found dead inside a train carriage, police told the BBC.

The number of injured remain unknown, as rescue efforts are underway.

“Other than the driver, we have not yet identified the victims,” Transport Ministry spokesman Bambang Ervan told Agence-France Presse news agency.

The truck is said to be from Pertamina, a state-owned oil and gas company.

Witnesses say the train’s first two train carriages caught fire and loud explosions were heard.

Local journalist Pandu Jati, who was aboard one of the train carriages, told the BBC there were a lot of passengers.

He said passengers in his carriage kept on trying to open the doors and the windows until they managed to evacuate from the train.
