28 Die in Bus Accident in Southern Bolivia

LA PAZ – At least 28 people, including two babies, died and 10 others were injured when a bus plunged into a 100-meter (328- foot) ravine in Bolivia’s Tarija region, which borders Argentina, police said Monday.

The accident happened Sunday about 30 kilometers (19 miles) northwest of Tarija city, the regional capital, highway patrol Col. Placido Arroyo said.

The driver and nine other people injured in the accident are being treated at Tarija’s San Juan de Dios Hospital, the medical facility’s director, Olga Mora, told Panamericana radio.

There was poor visibility due to fog at the time of the accident and the road is in poor condition, investigators said, adding that speeding has not been ruled out as a cause of the accident.

The Copa Moya line bus was heading from Villazon, a town on the border with Argentina, to Tarija city when the accident occurred.

Highway accidents claim the lives of an average of 1,000 people annually and leave about 40,000 others injured, official figures show. EFE
