Colombia bus crash kills 26

BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) — 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.
