Horror bus crash in Peru leaves at least 23 dead

At least 23 people were killed in Peru after a bus travelling along a twisting mountain fell into a ravine. The accident occurred at about 0300 on a road between Cusco and Puerto Maldonado. The bus then plummeted off the road into the ravine, which according to reports is more than 100 metres deep. Reports on the number of passengers on board vary but at least 50 people were on the bus. Dozens of passengers were injured and transported to hospital. Police are investigating the cause of the crash. Bus accidents are common in Peru, where vehicle and highway maintenance is poor and roads snake along precarious mountains.
