A bus fell off a cliff in Coto Brus, killing three passengers and injuring 10 more on board. The bus was returning from Quepos when it went off the road and rolled off a 100-meter-high precipice around 8 p.m. Friday.
A report from the Judicial Investigating Organization listed the fatalities as a 16-year-old girl, a 44-year-old woman, and a 53-year-old man who appeared to be the driver. All passengers were Costa Rican, according to the organization’s spokesperson.
