At least 27 people were killed and 16 others injured in Indonesian island Java as a bus plunged from a hill on Saturday. 
 
Local police chief Muhammad Joni said 16 men were hospitalized with injuries, some in critical condition, from the accident, which occurred on a winding slope in Subang district of West Java province. 
 
He said 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.
