12 killed in Bolivia road crash

Two vehicles collided Wednesday on a highway between the west Bolivian towns of Oruro and Huanuni, killing 12 people, including three leaders of the mine workers union, police said.

According to a preliminary police report, the head-on collision took place near the community of Sora Sora in the department of Oruro when a station wagon from the Huanuni Mining Company hit a public transit minibus carrying at least 14 passengers, Xinhua reports.

One vehicle was reportedly steered into the opposite lane, leading to the fatal accident. The death toll may rise due to the critical state of some of the injured.
