Bus crash in Argentina leads to manslaughter investigation


An investigation has been launched in Argentina after a bus ran off a road into a ravine in the rugged northwest of the country.


Ten people were killed in the crash, while another fifty were injured.

The bus was traveling from Villazon in Bolivia to Buenos Aires.

Police have now launched an investigation to determine whether manslaughter charges should be laid against the Bolivian driver of the bus, who is currently being held in custody after telling police the brakes on the bus locked up.

The man may be charged with involuntary manslaughter, according to authorities.

Witnesses have told police the double-decker bus had been overloaded with passengers and was travelling too fast on the steep road.

Of the people killed, one was a six-month-old baby and another was a six-year-old girl.
