JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) - A bus has plunged from a hill while traveling on Indonesia's main island of Java, killing at least 27 people.

Local police chief Muhammad Joni says 16 other people were hospitalized with injuries, some in critical condition, from the accident, which occurred Saturday on a winding slope in Subang district of West Java province.

He says the vehicle's engine apparently lost power while going up a hill and rolled backward and hit a motorbike before falling into a grass field.

Television footage showed police, soldiers and medical personnel evacuating the victims from the upside-down bus, which was carrying more than 40 local tourists. The bus was headed for Tangerang, a satellite city just south of the capital, Jakarta, from West Java's Tangkuban Perahu, a popular mountainous resort.

Cooler and cloudier today, record heat expected today, then the chance for high fire danger or showers next week.
