A bus carrying workers of a textile firm and a truck collided on a freeway in Brazil’s Sao Paulo state early Wednesday, killing 40 folks, officers stated.
Rescuers had been serving to the wounded and passengers caught in the wreckage of the autos in the municipality of Taguai, about 350 kilometres from the town of Sao Paulo. Television photos confirmed shards of glass, destroyed bus seats and items of the autos strewn on the freeway.
“There is not any clear indication about what triggered the accident, and it’s being investigated,” Sao Paulo Gov. Joao Doria stated in a press convention. He stated all of the assets of his authorities could be used to assist the victims and their households.
A police spokesperson informed TV Globo that thus far the loss of life toll stood at 37, and Sao Paulo firefighters later stated on their official Twitter account that 40 folks had been killed.
