Initial investigations point to brake failure, according to the authorities

At least 13 people were killed and 21 injured on Monday when a bus veered out of control and slammed into a rock face in southern Mexico, the authorities said.

The accident happened before dawn on a highway in the state of Chiapas near the border with Guatemala.

"The passenger bus left the road and collided with a wall of rock, killing 13 people," the state prosecutor's office said in a statement.

Initial investigations point to brake failure, according to the authorities, who said that the passengers were mostly residents of communities in the area.
