A charter bus that was in an single-vehicle accident lies on its side, in San Raimundo, near Bogota, Colombia, Monday, Dec. 17, 2012. The accident resulted in the death of at least 26 passengers and another 15 wounded. The driver, who survived the accident, told police the brakes failed when he tried to negotiate a curve in the road, causing the bus to swerve off the road and flip over.

A bus carrying visitors from a coffee fair has overturned in central Colombia, killing at least 26 people.
Highway police commander Francisco Patino says the bus apparently lost its brakes early Monday on the road from Bogota to Giradot, though he says the cause is under investigation.
At least 15 people are reported injured and many of those were taken to nearby hospitals.
