Cusco-Lima bus overturns, injuring 18

Eighteen people were injured yesterday when a bus from Cusco to Lima came off the road. The vehicle, run by the company Wari Palomino, overturned about 60km from Abancay.

The six most serious casualties were transferred to Cusco hospital, while the rest were treated in emergency tents at the Curahuasi medical post as the local medical infrastructure has been abandoned and declared in a state of emergency.
