On October 12, 2013, a cargo truck carrying 51 people, including 14 children, plunged off a 200-meter cliff, killing everyone on board. This incident is currently tied with the 2018 Pasamayo bus crash as the deadliest road accident in Peruvian history.[1][2] According to authorities, the truck, which was being used as a makeshift bus, was traveling to a celebration in the Santa Teresa district, when the driver lost control of the bus as it plunged off a 200-meter cliff into the Chaupimayo River below.[3][4][5][6]
