BUENOS AIRES (Reuter) - A triple bus crash when one bus tried to pass another on a road in northern Argentina killed at least 60 people and injured 80.

The accident, near the Brazilian border, was caused when the driver of an Argentine bus tried to pass another Argentine bus on a curve but crashed head-on into an oncoming Paraguayan bus. The Argentine bus tore the Paraguayan bus in two and caught fire. The second Argentine bus then slammed into the other vehicles.
