Accident2A TransJakarta bus rammed into a tree along the Kalideres-Harmoni route of corridor 3 in West Jakarta, Indonesia, on the morning of July 4.

A spokesperson of TransJakarta, Sri Ulina Pinem said, “[The driver] swerved because the positions were too close. If he hit the brake, the motorcycles would be hit.”
