Jakarta. A total of 11 vehicles were involved in a pile-up crash on the Bawen-Semarang toll road in Semarang, Central Java, on Monday night (25/12), resulting in minor injuries and zero fatalities, state-run news agency Antara reported.
A "Rosalia Indah" passenger bus was reportedly driving at an unsafe speed and rear-ended a vehicle, resulting in a collision that affected a total of 11 vehicles, including a large truck.
"Due to lack of anticipation, the bus [driver] hit the vehicle in front him, which made that vehicle hit the vehicle in front it, and so on and so on," said Nanda Firman, a communications officer at toll operator Trans Marga Jateng.
"The toll road has been reopened again just one and a half hours after the crash," he added.
There were at least seven individuals with minor injuries caused by the crash. They were treated at a nearby hospital in Banyumanik, Semarang.
Police suspect the bus had faulty brakes.
