Mexico Bus Accident: At least 17 people have died and several others have been injured after a bus carrying migrants overturned in Mexico. A bus carrying migrants from Venezuela, Colombia and Central America overturned in central Mexico, news agency Reuters reported, citing officials in the state of Puebla.

Puebla Interior Minister Julio Huerta was quoted as saying that the accident occurred on a highway on Sunday afternoon when the bus carrying 45 passengers was traveling north. He told reporters that 15 people died in the accident. Another 15 were hospitalised, two of whom later died. The condition of five others remains critical.

The driver and helper of the bus were also among the dead.

The passenger bus, operated by a private bus line called Tours Turisticos Medina, was traveling from Tapachula in southern Mexico to Mexico City. The 17 people who died in the accident included the bus driver and his helper. It is being told that migrants often use dangerous routes to cross Mexico on their way to the US border.

Colombia's Foreign Ministry confirmed that a 56-year-old Colombian man was among the dead and that three Colombian survivors (two men and a woman) were admitted to a hospital in Puebla.

According to Mexican media, the driver of the bus lost control, causing the accident. Some parts of the bus are badly damaged in the pictures that came out after the accident.
