A traffic accident involving a car and truck happened in Neglasari, Tangerang, Banten on Tuesday night.

A truck loaded with hebel blocks crashed into a white car, the head of the traffic accident unit at the Tangerang Police Adj. Comr. Isha Anshori said.

"There was a person inside the car during the accident," he said on Tuesday as quoted by wartakota.tribunnews.com

Isha said there was no casualty in the accident although the car was severely damaged.

"We are still investigating [the accident]. The passengers are alive, [they only suffered] material losses," he said.

Earlier this month four passengers of a car were killed in an accident after it was hit by a truck carrying soil on Jl. Imam Bonjol in Cibodas, Tangerang.

Only an 11-month-old baby survived the accident. The baby, seated at the backseat of the car was protected by her mother's body. Witnesses rescued the baby from the car window as the dying mother begged them to take the baby and let it live. (Gis)
