Truck Crash in Nicaragua Leaves 4 Dead

MANAGUA Four people were killed and 30 others injured Tuesday when a truck packed with farm workers overturned on a road in northwestern Nicaragua, police said.

The accident took place 104 kilometers (64 miles) northwest of Managua on the Telica-Malpaisillo highway.

The 55 workers aboard were en route to a peanut plantation when the driver lost control and the truck ran off the road before flipping over, district police commander Luis Barrantes said.

Three men and a woman died at the scene, while 30 other workers with serious injuries were taken to a hospital in Leon, authorities said.

One of the survivors of the crash, Jorge Trinidad Flores, told reporters that the truck was driven by a 16-year-old male who was speeding prior to the accident and tried to flee afterward.

Road accidents are the fifth-leading cause of death in Nicaragua.
