A tour bus carrying passengers from the Carnival Cruise Lines Millennium has crashed outside Santiago Chile leaving at least 11 people dead and many others injured . The bus was returning from visiting a National Park and was traveling on a poor section of road that ran along a cliffside.
“We have confirmed 11 people killed,” Poli said. He said some of the dead were thought to be from the United States but did not have an exact number or identities.
The crash occurred as the tourists returned to their Bahamas-registered Millennium cruise ship after visiting the nearby Lauca National Park.
“We still do not know the causes of the accident, but the road in that was has several cliffs and is very curvy,” Poli told the Associated Press by telephone via Yahoo! News.
