A bus accident in a town 30 miles south-west of Medellin, central Colombia, left two people dead and 35 injured Sunday afternoon.
The chiva bus crashed into a house in the town of Betulia after losing its brakes on a steep slope on the border of the Betulia municipality. The vehicle was returning to the part of the municipality named Vereda El Indio and was full of residents from the area who had left the town for the day to sell their products, reported Caracol Radio.
