The bus plunged 700 feet into a ravine on Monday, around a bend in the road known as “The Curve of the Condor”

Foggy conditions, excess speed, a faulty bus, reckless oncoming traffic and a damaged road seem to all have played a part in the accident, the worst this year in Bolivia.

Authorities are still investigating, as the driver gave 2 different versions of what exactly happened, the passengers said they heard mechanical noises and asked the driver to slow down, and a the “Copa Moya” bus company, said it was the fog and the road conditions what caused the accident.
