PHOTOS: 19 people dead, 32 injured after bus carrying Catholic pilgrims in Mexico crashed into building
At least 19 people have died and 32 more injured after a bus carrying Catholic pilgrims to a religious site in Central Mexico crashed on Friday, November 26.
Authorities said the bus lost its brakes and slammed into a building in the State of Mexico.
Six of the victims suffered injuries so severe they were flown to a hospital in Toluca, the state capital.
Ricardo de la Cruz, the assistant state interior secretary, said the accident occurred in the township of Joquicingo, southwest of Mexico City.
The bus was heading from the western state of Michoacan to Chalma, a town that has been visited by Roman Catholic pilgrims for centuries, when the accident occurred.
