TEGUCIGALPA — A crash between a bus and a truck just outside the Honduran capital Tegucigalpa killed 23 people and injured 34 others, officials said on Monday.
The accident occurred late Sunday when the truck, carrying melons, lost control and swerved into the oncoming traffic lane.
The truck collided with the bus, sending it into a wall, said Commissioner Leonel Sauceda, head of the police traffic service.
The driver of the truck is in custody pending an investigation to determine if he was driving at an unsafe speed. — AFP
