Here’s Fox News with more:

The bus landed upside down on a rocky beach in Pasamayo, which is north of Lima and borders the Pacific Ocean. The highway is known as the “Devil’s Curve” because it is narrow, frequently shrouded in mist and curves along a cliff that has seen numerous accidents.

Police Col. Dino Escudero told local radio company RPP that there is “a large number of fatal victims.”

Escudero said the driver lost control of the vehicle due to the collision and authorities have opened an investigation into the incident, BBC reported.

Rescuers were working to pull victims from the hard-to-reach area. BBC reported that a helicopter was also being used to rescue people.

Unfortunately for rescue workers, there aren’t any roads in the area that lead directly to the beach, but thankfully police and emergency workers were able to rescue six individuals with serious injuries to the hospital.

The vast majority of folks on the bus were just returning back from vigorous New Year’s celebrations with their families who lived outside of the city.

Peru’s President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski released a statement following the horrific tragedy:

“It’s very sad for us as a country to suffer an accident of this magnitude.”

Peru is no stranger to disasters, having experienced a deadly flood in March of 2017.

The Guardian reports:

Sixty-seven people have been killed and thousands more forced to evacuate by intense rains which damaged 115,000 homes and destroyed more than 100 bridges in Peru’s worst floods in recent memory.

“We are confronting a serious climatic problem,” said Peru’s president, Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, in a broadcast to the nation on Friday afternoon. “There hasn’t been an incident of this strength along the coast of Peru since 1998.”

The disaster – which came after a period of severe drought – has been blamed on abnormally high temperatures in the Pacific Ocean, and fuelled criticism that the country is ill-prepared for the growing challenges of climate change.

Rains continued to lash the northern Piura region where streets remained flooded in the regional capital and homes had been washed away in poorer neighbourhoods.

This is seriously sad and is a devastating way for the families of the victims to start out 2018.This is supposed to be a time of renewal and hope, but these folks have been ravaged and left in a state of devastation.

Keep the good people of Peru in your thoughts and prayers as they seek to heal from this horrific incident.

TOGETHER WE WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!
