QUITO — Rescue workers said a bus ran off a foggy, rainy mountain road in Ecuador and plunged about 1,100 feet (350 meters), killing 35 people and injuring 23 others on Friday.

Red Cross worker Jorge Arteaga said by telephone that Friday's accident occurred before dawn in the western province of Manabi.

The Red Cross sent 30 volunteers and five ambulances to the scene. Arteaga said 30 have died and 23 people have been taken to a hospital but he is not sure how many were aboard the bus.
