Peru: A major accident took place on Saturday in Peru, located in the continent of South America. A bus carrying 60 passengers fell off a cliff in northern Peru, killing 24 people. Police said some of the passengers were from Haiti, as the number of Haitian immigrants in Peru is increasing, although the condition of those on the bus was not clear. The police has given this information to the local media. According to the AP, the accident occurred at a difficult spot known as the “Devil’s Curve”, but the cause is under investigation.
Peru’s transport supervisory agency (SUTRAN) confirmed the accident in a statement, but did not give the death toll and the number of injured. Sutran said that the accident happened in a bus of the company Q’Orianka Tours Aguila Dorada in El Alto district in the far north of Peru. During the accident, many passengers were able to jump from the bus and saved themselves, but most were trapped inside. Unidentified injured passengers were taken to hospitals in El Alto and Mancora, a popular resort about 1,000 kilometers (620 miles) north of Lima, where all are being treated.
