Four Dead in Bolivia Accident

LA PAZ Four people were killed and 14 others injured when a truck carrying farm workers hit a parked vehicle and plunged 300 meters (983 feet) into a ravine in La Paz province, Bolivian media outlets said Wednesday.

The accident took place at 8:00 p.m. Tuesday.

The parked vehicle a truck hauling a farm tractor apparently did not have its lights on at the time of the collision and witnesses told reporters that visibility was poor amid heavy rain.

It was the fifth serious highway accident in Bolivia so far this year.

The first occurred on Jan. 6, when a bus ran off the road and fell into a ravine in Cochabamba province, leaving 22 dead and 28 hurt.

Sixteen people died in a Jan. 19 collision between a bus and a parked truck on a Bolivian mountain road, while 18 passengers were killed two days later when another bus plunged into a river in the Yungas region and 10 others remain missing and feared dead.

A bus accident Monday in Cochabamba province resulted in five deaths. EFE
