One dead, 11 injured in Trujillo bus accident

11 people were injured and one killed when a bus veered off the road and over a 50m cliff in La Libertad department. Police believe that the accident was a result of driver error and excess speed, on a section of dirt highway that is known for a large number of blind bends. 

The 12 victims were rescued by personnel of a nearby mining company and transferred to the nearest medical center, but a 23-year-old man died in transit as a result of the injuries he had sustained. The bus was travelling from Trujillo to Sayapullo, and the accident occurred at around 10am.
