A multiple pile up in Peru has left at least 37 dead and scores injured. A bus swerved into another on-coming bus with yet a third and a lorry slamming into the first two vehicles.

An emergency coordinator said preliminary investigations indicate the driver of the first bus may have fallen asleep at the wheel.

A group of Senegalese and evangelicals with the Worldwide Missionary Movement were involved in the crash.

Peru has a notoriously high level of traffic accidents – in the first six months of 2014 more than 1400 people were killed on the roads.
