JAKARTA: Twelve people were killed and dozens more injured in an Indonesian traffic accident Monday after a passenger tried to wrest control of a bus steering wheel following an argument with the driver, police said, reports AFP.

The accident happened at around 1:00 am Monday (1800 GMT Sunday) when the coach swerved into oncoming traffic on a toll road in West Java, smashing into two cars and causing a truck to roll.

Some 43 people were injured in the multi-vehicle accident and rushed to hospital, police said.

“In the middle of the journey, a passenger attempted to forcibly take control of the steering wheel... and the bus then lost control,” Atik Suswanti, the head of the Majalengka police traffic unit, told AFP.
