More deaths on the road

The highways have been stained with blood once again. At least three people lost their lives on Sunday and another two were seriously injured in two transport accidents just outside
Lima on the Panamerican highway.
 According to RPP Noticias, the first accident occurred 30km south of the city when a car coming to Lima from the city of
Ica struck a goods vehicle that was coming out of a crop field. At least three of the car’s occupants were killed. Witnesses reported that the car was traveling at excessive speed.

28km north of
Lima, another truck was involved in a collision with a public bus, leaving at least two people injured. It appears that the truck driver was under the influence of alcohol, which caused him to lose control of his vehicle.
