Police say a crowded bus overturned on a toll road on Indonesia’s main island of Java and 16 people were killed.

Java police Lt. Col. Pungki Bhuwana says about 50 other passengers were injured in the crash today on Jatingaleh turnpike near Semarang, the capital of Central Java province.

The bus ran out of control and rolled over on a sharp bend, hitting a road divider before ending up on a gorge wall.

It was carrying members of a Quran recitation group back from the Central Java town of Pekalongan to Bojonegoro in East Java.
