A tour bus carrying 40 passengers, including Americans, overturned on the highway between Guantánamo and Baracoa, Cuba, on Jan. 11, killing seven people and injuring 33. Those killed were three Cubans, two Argentinians, a German and a Frenchman.

The bus was being operated by the state-run company Viazul. Witnesses said the bus was trying to overtake another car at the time of the accident. The driver told investigators that a wet road caused him to lose control of the vehicle.
