MADRID: Five people died and 20 others were injured Monday when a bus crashed into the pillar of a viaduct in northern Spain, authorities said. The accident took place in Aviles in the Asturias region, a spokeswoman for emergency services told AFP.

“Five people have died,” a spokesman for the central government’s representative office in Asturias added – all of them passengers. Among the 20 injured was the driver, who had to have a limb amputated, the spokesman said. Photos published in local media showed the front of the bus split in half by the pillar.
