At least 34 dead in Peru bus pile-up

At least 34 people were killed when a bus swerved into oncoming traffic in Peru, leading to a multi-vehicle collision involving two other buses and a truck, authorities said.

Health Minister Anibal Velasquez, who was on his way to the crash site near the northern city of Huarmey, says the accident also left 70 people injured.

Authorities initially gave a death toll of 22, but Velasquez told local radio that the number had increased sharply as rescue workers managed to access the wreckage.
