Students at an Indonesian secondary school have died after their car crashed into a semi-truck on the A-road.

The accident happened around 4pm local time on Wednesday.

The vehicle crashed into the back of a truck which was parked near the school in the town of Ayun in the province of Aceh, said local media.

The students, aged between 12 and 17, were taken to the nearby hospital but later died.

They were reportedly attending a day-long school event.

“A-road is like a fast-moving river that passes through many towns in Aceh province.

In one minute, a semi truck can move from a point to a point, and it can travel up to two kilometres a day,” police said in a statement.

Police said the accident happened as a result of the driver of the truck failing to stop at a traffic light.

“The driver failed to see the stop sign.

The truck veered off the road into the semi truck,” said police spokesman Bijaya Ayub.

Police added the driver was not arrested and there was no sign of foul play.

Police in neighbouring Aceh have not yet released the name of the school or the driver.
