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.
