Brazil: 33 dead in truck-bus crash

Brazilian authorities say a tractor-trailor has slammed into a bus carrying sugarcane cutters, killing at least 33 people and injuring 13 others.


A police spokesman says the truck driver lost control as he was rounding a corner and heading down a hill early Saturday near a town called Miracles in the northeastern state of Bahia. The truck was carrying a load of construction materials, which also slammed into the bus. (AP)
