Head-on train crash in Indonesia kills at least 2

A railway official says two passenger trains crashed head-on in Indonesia, killing at least two people and injuring dozens.
Surono, who goes by only one name, said rescuers were still trying to reach people inside the carriages.
The accident occurred at around 2:30 a.m. Friday near Bajar, a village in West Java province.
Surono said the injured were rushed to a nearby hospital.
Fourteen were in critical condition.
Train accidents are common on Indonesia's aging railway network, especially at crossings.
