Bus crash outside Lima leaves one dead, 22 injured

A crash between a local bus and a heavy truck left one passenger dead and 22 wounded in Chaclacayo yesterday. The public transport vehicle was headed from the popular weekend destination of Chosica to Lima, about 30km away, when it struck a goods vehicle that suddenly pulled out of a fuel station.

A 19-year-old woman was killed instantly, and some other passengers were left trapped in the wreckage. It took firefighters from Chosica, Chaclacayo and Lima some hours to free them and transport them to clinics and the local hospital.

They are being treated under the compulsory accident insurance that both vehicles carried.
