Bus plunges off highway in deadly crash in Peru

iStock/Thinkstock(LIMA, Peru) -- Officers in Peru are racing to rescue victims after a bus fell over the edge of the Pan-American Highway, just north of Lima, the capital, the National Police of Peru said on Twitter.

At least 36 people were killed in the crash, officials said according to the BBC.

Peru transport chief Dino Escudero said the bus apparently collided with the trailer of another vehicle and the driver lost control, BBC reports.

Photos show the destroyed, overturned bus laying on top of rocks on the beach, partially in the water.
