La Paz - Bolivian police say a tanker truck carrying alcohol collided with five cars and caught fire on a highway near the Peruvian border. Ten people are reported dead and 14 injured.
Transit police colonel Dainer Zurita says the alcohol spilled from the truck and caught fire, burning 11 vehicles.
He says the truck driver may not have noticed that cars were stopped ahead of him. Traffic was restricted to a single lane because partiers were occupying part of the road on Friday. It was a local holiday celebrating the new year 5 521 of the indigenous Andean calendar.
