Ecuador Bus 🚌 Crash Outside Quito Kills 24, Injures 19

At least 24 people have been killed and 19 others injured in a bus crash outside Ecuador's capital Quito, emergency services said.

The bus, which had foreign license plates, was on a downward stretch of highway 30km east of Quito early on Sunday when it struck an all-terrain vehicle and overturned, slamming into three houses on the side of the road, officials said.

The dead included an unspecified number of Venezuelans and Colombians, they added. Embassies were notified of the accident.

"Most of the victims were Colombians," said Juan Zapata, security secretary for the capital city.

Three Ecuadorans in the all-terrain vehicle were also among the dead, said Christian Rivera, the head of Quito's emergency operations committee. Three children were also killed, officials said.
