MEXICO CITY — Mexican state officials say a bus carrying maquiladora workers has crashed near the U.S. border, killing six people and injuring 68.
The Tamaulipas state civil defense office has distributed photos showing a flipped bus with its wheels in the air and passenger compartment partly crushed.
The office said Tuesday’s predawn crash occurred on the road between the city of Reynosa and the neighboring town of Rio Bravo, across the border from McAllen, Texas.
It said the workers were employed at an industrial park.
The office did not specify the condition of the injured, but said they had been taken to two local hospitals.
