Death Toll from Peru Bus Crash Rises to 23

LIMA Twenty-three people were killed and 34 were injured when a bus plunged into a river in a mountainous region of southern Peru, police told EFE.

Original reports had said at least 15 had died and 16 were injured in the crash.

The accident occurred early Friday morning in the southern region of Cuzco when the bus, which was traveling between that region and neighboring Madre de Dios, went off the road and fell into the Mapacho River.

Twenty adults and three girls died in the crash.

Six people were seriously injured and taken to a hospital in the city of Cuzco, the regional capital, while 28 others received treatment at the site of the accident.

An investigation is under way to determine the causes of the crash.

Accidents in Peruvian highland areas are typically the result of driver error, trucks and buses in unsatisfactory condition and rural roads in a poor state of repair.
