Canadians, Americans, Killed in Mexico Bus Crash
A bus filled with U.S. and Canadian tourists traveling in northern Mexico was hit by a tractor trailer on Monday, killing at least 11, and sending about 16 to hospital with serious injuries.
The driver of the 18 wheeler, who was under the influence of either alcohol or drugs, swerved, and then overcompensated, hitting the tour bus head-on, on a two lane highway near Monterrey.
The latest reports from Mexican media suggested five Canadians were among the dead, including a 68-year-old woman from Caledonia, Ont., a 67-year-old woman from Vancouver, B.C., and a 56-year-old man from Quebec.
