Bus crash kills 18 migrants, mostly from Haiti and Venezuela
At least 18 migrants, mostly from Venezuela and Haiti, died early Friday in a bus crash in southern Mexico, authorities said.
Prosecutors in the southern state of Oaxaca said the dead include two women and three children, and that 27 people were injured. There was no immediate information on their condition.
Photos distributed by Oaxaca state police showed the bus rolled over onto its side on a curvy section of highway.
The cause of the crash is under investigation. State police said a total of 55 migrants, mostly from Venezuela, were aboard the vehicle.
It was the latest in a series of migrant deaths in Mexico amid a surge in migrants traveling toward the U.S. border.
