13 die in bus crash in Bolivia

Thirteen people were killed and 32 injured in a bus-truck collision on a highway near Ayo Ayo, about 85 km from here, officials said.

The bus, carrying 45 passengers, moving from the northern Chilean city of Arica to La Paz, Tuesday night hit a truck parked along the side of the highway and did not have its lights on, the La Razon newspaper said.   

Eleven people died on the spot and two others succumbed to their injuries while being transported to a hospital, highway patrol said.
