At least 19 dead in Mexico bus crash

At least 19 people were killed and 38 injured in a bus crash on Tuesday evening in central Mexico, in what appeared to be a mechanical failure, local media reported.

Three passengers remain missing, according to the municipal government of El Jimenez.

The accident took place in a mountainous area of Durango state, a region in western Mexico that borders the U.S. The bus was carrying 63 people.

Police confirmed to the local media that the bus rolled over four times after it lost control while travelling in heavy fog. The deceased included a child and a pregnant woman.

The death toll was being revised in the morning, as police was still attempting to establish how many of the passengers were still missing. The injured are being transported to a local hospital and an assistance center for the accident.

Durango, which borders Texas, is a region that’s known for its rich oil resources. Many large companies that do business in that area have bases or operations there.
