11 Killed in Peru Bus Crash

LIMA – Eleven people were killed and 35 others injured Thursday when a bus ran off the road and tumbled 30 meters (98 feet) to the bottom of a ravine in northern Peru’s Ancash region, police said.

The accident occurred shortly before 11:00 a.m. in Cajacay district on the road linking the cities of Huaraz and Pativilca, a police spokesman told Efe.

Authorities are still working to recover the bodies of the dead, he said.

The 35 injured survivors were taken to several different hospitals in Barranca, Huaraz and Cajacay.

Bus accidents are all too common in Peru, especially in mountainous areas. Most crashes are attributed to excessive speed, driver fatigue or the poor condition of the vehicle.
