Eighteen people were killed and 11 others seriously injured after a van collided with a lorry in Indonesia's East Java province, police said Sunday, dpa reported.
The van was carrying 31 people, mostly women and children, who were on their way to pay respects to a dead relative in Probolinggo district when the accident happened on Saturday, East Java police spokesman Awi Setiono said.
It was apparently overtaking another vehicle when it slammed into a lorry coming from the opposite direction, he said.
The van's driver was among the dead. The driver of the lorry and his assistant survived.
