As a follow-up to my posting yesterday (February 19), the rural bus that slipped off a mountain road, killing 27 and injuring 30 others on Sunday (February 19) in the northern province of Imbabura, near Cuajara, reportedly had faulty brakes.

COMMENT: The accident occurred on the Ibarra-San Lorenzo highway linking the provinces of Imbabura with Esmeraldas, not far from the Colombian border.
