At least 36 are killed dead when bus plunges 260 feet off a cliff after being hit by a tractor trailer on a highway known as 'Devil's Curve' in Peru
At least 36 people were killed when a bus tumbled down a cliff onto a rocky beach Tuesday along a narrow stretch of highway known as the 'Devil's Curve,' Peruvian police and fire officials said. The bus was carrying 57 passengers to Peru's capital when it was struck by a tractor trailer shortly before noon and plunged down the slope, said Claudia Espinoza with Peru's voluntary firefighter brigade. The blue bus came to rest upside down on a strip of shore next to the Pacific, the lifeless bodies of passengers strewn among the rocks. Source
