10 Dead, 4 Injured in Road Accident in Southern Mexico

Ten people died and four others were hurt in a fiery collision between a bus and a fuel truck in the southeastern Mexican state of Tabasco, authorities said.

The crash took place late Thursday near Centla on the highway linking Villahermosa, Tabasco’s capital, with Ciudad del Carmen in neighboring Campeche state, Tabasco official Cesar Raul Ojeda said on Twitter.

The impact left the bus in two pieces, one of which was burned in the resulting massive blaze, along with the tanker truck.

Authorities were working to determine the cause of the accident.

Six people died earlier on Thursday when a truck carrying chickens struck a bus on the Fresnillo-Cuencame highway in the western state of Durango.

Another bus-truck collision last month in the Gulf coast state of Veracruz left 36 people dead.
