Brasilia: Brazilian authorities say 14 people were killed after a passenger bus slammed into a bulldozer that had fallen from a truck transporting it.

Police say the accident happened in the northeastern state of Bahia. Local media reports citing officials at two hospitals say at least 21 people were also injured.

Police couldn't confirm that figure, nor the gravity of injuries. The accident happened as the bus was heading around a curve today and struck the bulldozer. The driver of the truck that was carrying the dozer fled the scene.
