Lima: At least 36 people are dead after a bus collided with a truck on the Panamericana Norte highway in Peru.

Family members of the fallen have arrived on the scene in Peru after at least 36 people died on Tuesday (January 2) when the bus on which they were travelling collided with a truck and careened off a cliff along a sharply curving highway north of the capital, Lima.

The accident took place on the Panamericana Norte highway near the area of Pasamayo, 80 km (50 miles) north of Lima. The death toll could rise because the bus had been carrying as many as 40 passengers. Road accidents are common in Peru because of unsafe highways.

Police are investigating Tuesday's accident.
