Fourteen people died and over 30 were injured in a car accident on Wednesday after a bus and a truck crashed head-on and caught fire. The occurrence took place in the state of Guárico, central north Venezuela, the director of the Civil Protection Agency, Luis Díaz Curbelo, informed.

The injured were taken to a local hospital and other nearby health centers, Díaz stated.

One of the injured was taken to the northern state of Aragua given his serious health conditions caused by multiple burns.

The causes of the accident were attributed to the rain and driving over the speed limit.

Is protest over?

That political protest in Venezuela has lost momentum seems pretty obvious: people are no longer building barricades to block off streets near Plaza Francia in Altamira (eastern Caracas), an anti-government stronghold; no new images have been shown of brave and dashing protesters with bandanna-covered faces clashing with the National Guard in San Cristóbal, in the western state of Táchira; and those who dreamed of a horde of "Gochos" (Tachirans) descending  in an avalanche to stir up revolt in Caracas have been left with no option but to wake up to reality.
