Panama’s national fire and rescue department disclosed details about the accident on Twitter, including a picture showing the wrecked vehicle upside down in a riverbed, surrounded by rescue workers.

The accident occurred about an hour after the bus, en route to the Panamanian town of David, departed the town of Puerto Armuelles.
