At least 22 people died in Brazil following accidents between buses and trucks | Instant News

At least 22 people died in Brazil early Wednesday when a packed bus rammed directly into a truck, according to reports.

The gruesome image shared by G1 GloboNews shows the bus completely crushed and crushed on the front – with the top apparently missing from the cabin of the truck after a 7am crash on the outskirts of Sao Paulo.

In addition to the 22 people who were confirmed dead, at least 15 were injured – with some still trapped in rubble on a remote part of the Alfredo de Oliveira Carvalho city highway, police told the station.

The bus has been packed with at least 40 employees from a textile company, firefighters told GloboNews.

São Paulo’s Military Police spokesman Lt. Alexandre Guedes said the location was difficult to access, and warned that the death toll could easily change, according to the report. The injured were taken to several hospitals around the area, officials said.
