SAO PAULO – At least seven people were killed Tuesday when a bus flipped over on a highway in the southern Brazilian state of Parana, the Expresso Maringa bus company said.
The bus left Foz de Iguaçu, a city on the border with Paraguay, and was heading to Maringa when it flipped over at dawn near the city of Campo Mourao.
The bus, with 42 people on board, went off the road for unknown reasons and flipped over.
The bus was traveling at between 100 kph and 110 kph (62 mph and 68 mph), above the speed limit for the area, when the accident occurred, the federal highway patrol said.
Several people injured in the accident were transported to nearby hospitals.
