10 Die in Bus Accident in Colombia

BOGOTA – At least 10 people were killed and 10 others injured when a bus plunged into a ravine in a town in the Colombian province of Cundinamarca, police said Sunday.

“The death toll from the accident is approximately 10 people dead,” police transit and transportation chief Gen. Rodolfo Palomino said.

The intercity bus, which belonged to the Valle de Tenza company, went off a highway in Gacheta and plunged into a ravine, Palomino said.

The bus broke into three pieces due to the force of the impact, Cundinamarca fire department spokesman Dario Valenzuela said.

The 10 injured people were taken to area hospitals and at least three of them are in serious condition, Gacheta Mayor Hernando Velandia said.

Police have not provided an official report on the accident, but it has been speculated that it may have been caused by brake failure.

The bus was carrying 20 people, including the driver and his assistant.
