A commuter train slammed into a passenger minibus Sunday at a railroad crossing in Indonesia's capital, killing at least 18 people and seriously injuring six others.

The bus driver allegedly ignored the warning signals when he crossed the rail tracks and was rammed by the train in western Jakarta, said Wirdhanto, the police chief in the neighborhood of Tambora. Like many Indonesians, Wirdhanto uses only one name.
