Five Argentines Die in Traffic Accident in Southern Brazil

RIO DE JANEIRO – At least five Argentines died and seven other people were injured in a head-on collision Monday involving an automobile and a bus in southern Brazil, the federal highway patrol said.

Two children, ages 11 and 3, are among the dead, while a 16-year-old girl is hospitalized in serious condition.

Six Brazilians, all of whom were riding on the bus, were slightly injured and taken to a hospital near the accident scene on national highway BR-290 between the cities of Rosario do Sul and São Gabriel in Rio Grande do Sul state.

The Chevrolet Zafira may have been trying to pass another vehicle in a legal passing zone on a slight curve when it collided with the bus, the highway patrol said.

BR-290 links Porto Alegre, the capital of Rio Grande do Sul, with Uruguayana, a city on the border with Uruguay and Argentina’s Corrientes province.

The highway is one of the main routes used by Argentine tourists heading for Brazil’s coast. EFE
