27 people died and 16 others were injured when a bus carrying domestic tourists crashed on the Indonesian island of java.

The crash happened when the bus, which had at least 40 people on board, hit a motorbike while heading down a hill at speed in the Subang region of west java province, causing it to roll over multiple times.

Most of the passengers, who were on their way to a hot spring, were from South Tangerang in java’s Banten province.

Police are investigating the cause of the collision but said they suspect the vehicle’s brakes failed to work.

All victims have been evacuated from the bus and most have been taken to a local hospital.
