Argentina Bus Crash Kills At Least 18

At least 18 people have been killed in Argentina when a bus crashed into a lorry in the western city of Mendoza. The bus was en route from Cordoba to Mendoza.

The lorry, carrying a heavy load of garlic, was reportedly driving on the wrong side of the road. The lorry had a Brazilian licence plate, and was at a high speed.

The bus and the truck burst into flames on the impact of the collision, and most of the victims, including the driver, died in the accident.

It is said that around thirty people were traveling in the bus. The bus started its journey from the city of Cordoba, about 660 km northeast of Mendoza.
