ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: At least four people were killed and 72 injured, when a commuter train in Indonesia collided with a truck carrying fuel on Monday morning (December 9) in Banten Province south of Jakarta, local media reported. Both the carriage and tanker were on fire and flipped on their sides, while black smoke billowed. Most of the victims were women, as it was a females-only carriage that was derailed, television reports said. The train company said around 600 passengers were on the train when it collided with the truck just outside the capital, but most have been evacuated. Commuter trains are popular in Indonesia, especially in the Jakarta area, where they offer a cheaper and quicker way to travel. .
