A bus plunged over a seaside cliff in Peru on Tuesday, killing at least 48 people after a collision with a truck on a precarious stretch known as the "devil's curve," officials said.The bus was travelling from Huacho, 130 kilometers (81 miles) north of the capital, to Lima with 55 passengers and two crew on board when it went off the road about midday.There were several survivors, although most on board the bus perished.The Pasamayo highway on which the tragedy occurred is only used by trucks and buses, as cars travel a different route.More than 2,500 people died in traffic accidents in Peru in 2016, according to official figures.
