Lima, Jan 3 (IBNS): A fatal road accident in Peru claimed at least 36 lives on Tuesday, media reports said.

The accident took place in Pasamayo, about 72 and half kilometres from Lima, the national capital.

According to BBC news, a tractor trailer slammed into a bus at a stretch of road known as Curva del Diablo (the devil's bend), causing the latter to drop 260 feet from the surface, onto a beach.

The deaths have been mourned by President Pedro Pablo Kuczynski, who said in a statement, “It’s very sad for us as a country to suffer an accident of this magnitude.”

Earlier, the death toll was placed at 25.

According to rescuers, six people have survived the accident.
