Brazilian Man Killed in Traffic Accident in Central Bolivia

LA PAZ A Brazilian man was killed earlier this weekend when his motorcycle collided with another motorcycle on a highway in Cochabamba, a province in central Bolivia, media reports said Sunday.

The two motorcycles collided head-on while traveling on the Cochabamba-Santa Cruz highway, Cochabamba police chief Luis Aguilar told the Erbol radio station.

The victim, identified only as Antonio Joao V.F., was killed while traveling on Friday from the eastern city of Santa Cruz to La Paz, located in northwestern Bolivia, Aguilar said.

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

Accidents kill an average of 1,000 people and injure about 40,000 others annually in this Andean nation, government figures show.

The number of accidents rises during the rainy season between October and March as a result of the poor condition of roads in the Andean country.
