Six people were killed in the east of Colombia Saturday when a bus
crashed against a garbage truck. It’s the second large accident on a Colombian
road in a week.
The accident occurred apparently because one of the two vehicles overtook a car and ended up on the lane of upcoming traffic.
The two vehicles crashed on the road between Cúcuta and Puerto Santander.
Six people were injured and taken to hospitals in Cúcuta for treatment.
It is the second large road accident in Colombia this week. Tuesday more than 25 people died when a bus drove off a cliff in Chocó.
