Bus plunges into ravine, killing 9 in Brazil

A Brazilian bus company says at least nine people are dead after one of its vehicles ran off a road and fell into a ravine in southeastern Minas Gerais State.
Delamar da Cruz, spokesman for the Itapemirim bus company, says the accident occurred late Monday. The driver appears to have lost control of the bus on a rain-slicked curve.
Cruz said Wednesday the driver and eight passengers were killed. He says rescue workers were searching for three passengers who may have drowned in the small river at the bottom of the ravine.
Twenty-two passengers survived, and three remain hospitalized.
