Via Reuters:

(Reuters) - A crowded commuter train crashed into a fuel tanker on the outskirts of the Indonesian capital on Monday, killing at least 10 people in a huge explosion and injuring scores.

Investigations were under way after the accident shortly before lunch at a crossing in the suburb of Bintaro, southwest of Jakarta, police said. The truck was destroyed in the blaze.

"One of the railway crossing gates malfunctioned. A railway officer had tried to stop the truck," said Dedi Arnadi, head of police for the area, told reporters.

It was one of Indonesia's worst train accidents since 1987 when 156 people were killed when two trains collided, close to the scene of Monday's accident.

Too short to excerpt.

I won't say it.
Mercy on their souls.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.
