SAO PAULO (AP) — Officials say a bus and a tanker truck filled with milk burst into flames when they collided in southern Brazil, killing 20 people and injuring at least 10.
Fire department official Fernando Cesar Bettaro says the accident occurred early Monday near Cafezal do Sul in Parana state.

Most of the 30 passengers were headed to a public hospital for cataract surgeries.
