Several accidents occur on the roads of Peru

These accidents are common and very frequent on Peruvian roads, usually due to speeding, poor road condition, lack of signage and also the lack of control by the authorities.

In January of this year, for example, a bus with 60 passengers fell into a cliff, killing at least 24 people. The bus was on a road that is difficult to drive, known as “Curva do Diabo”, where several passengers were thrown through the windows, while others were trapped inside the vehicle.

However, it is not new that things like this happen in Peru. In 2022, for example, four tourists died and 16 were injured when a van fell off a cliff in Peru. Already in 2020, the deaths of at least 16 passengers were announced in a fall that left 40 injured, with four Brazilians.

Looking further back, in 2009, 40 people died and eight more were injured in an accident very similar to this one, when a bus plunged into a ravine approximately 100 meters high, 1,100 kilometers southeast of Lima.
