Runaway cement truck kills 17 wedding guests
Straits Times |
"What should have been a joyous celebration turned to grief on Sunday when a driver-less truck loaded with cement rolled backward into the party, killing 17 guests and injuring 12 others, police said yesterday. The driver was repairing the truck when it overran wooden chocks placed behind its wheels and slid 20m down a slight hill into the reception, which was being held in a house close to the road in the central Javanese town of Ambarawa, some 400km east of Jakarta. One of the 17 victims was a five-year-old girl, police said."
