Multi-Vehicle Crash Kills 11, Injures 32 in Peru

LIMA – At least 11 people were killed and 32 others injured when two buses and a pick-up truck collided on a highway in Chancay, a city in the northern part of Peru’s Lima department, emergency services officials said Monday.

The accident occurred on Sunday night at kilometer 79.5 of the Pan American North Highway when the driver of the pick-up truck cut off the buses.

One of the buses went off the highway while trying to avoid the pick-up and slammed into a roadside restaurant, Lima Norte fire brigade commander Pedro Penagos said.

Investigators have identified only four of the 11 people killed in the crash, while the injured were transported to hospitals in the cities of Chancay and Huaral, police said.

All three drivers involved in the accident were taken to the police station in Chancay.

The driver of the pick-up truck was drunk at the time of the accident and has a long record of traffic infractions, police said.
