At Least 8 Dead in Peru Truck Accident

LIMA – At least eight people died and another 20 were injured when a truck turned over in a remote area of the northern region of Cajamarca, Peru’s National Police said Monday.

The accident occurred at Kilometer-18.5 (Mile-11½) of the highway between San Pablo province and the Chilete district, some 870 kilometers (530 miles) from Lima.

Police sources told the official news agency Andina that the accident took place just after 11:00 p.m. Sunday.

They also said the bodies were removed to the town of Bambamarca, where the victims had lived, while the injured were taken to San Pablo and Chilete medical centers.

The fatalities were four men, three minors and a woman.

Accidents are extremely common in Peru, leaving a great many victims in very remote areas and mostly caused by the rugged terrain, careless driving, and the disrepair of roads and vehicles.
