Bus’s brakes fail, killing 11 and injuring 24 in Michoacán

A bus lost its brakes in Michoacán yesterday afternoon, killing 11 passengers when it struck a logging truck, went off the road and collided with an abandoned house.

Another 24 passengers were injured in the accident on the Angangueo-San José del Rincón highway in Cantingón, Angangueo.

The passengers, who were from the Michoacán communities of Angangueo, Ciudad Hidalgo and Zitácuaro, were returning home from a pilgrimage to Tlalpujahua in the northeast of the state.

The injured were transferred to hospitals in Zitácuaro and Ciudad Hidalgo.
