Highway Accident Leaves 9 Dead, 25 Injured in Bolivia

LA PAZ At least nine people were killed and 25 others injured when a truck went off a highway in Cochabamba, a region in central Bolivia, police said Sunday.

The accident occurred Saturday on the highway that links the city of Cochabamba to Arampampa, a town in the western region of Potosi, when the truck went off the road and plunged into a 30-meter (98-foot) ravine, Cochabamba transit police chief Oscar Rojas said.

The truck driver lost control of his vehicle on a sharp curve in the Vilca Pampa sector and went off the road, Rojas told the Los Tiempos newspaper.

The government has been trying for years to reduce the number of traffic accidents in Bolivia.

Traffic accidents kill an average of 1,000 people and injure about 40,000 others annually in this Andean nation, according to official figures.
