10 people dead as bus crashed in Brazil

RIO DE JANEIRO: A bus traveling on a notoriously dangerous stretch of road in Brazil overturned Saturday in a crash that left at least 10 people dead, officials said.

Highway police said it was apparently a tourist bus and it was not immediately known how many people were on the vehicle.

The police said dozens were injured when the bus flipped over and skidded along the side of the highway.

The accident happened in the northwest state of Piaui on a road that has come to be called “the route of death.”

The news website GP1 said that on that poorly maintained section of the road, more than 30 people have died this year.
