A bus carrying tourists, amongst them passengers of a flight from Phoenix, crashed in western Mexico on Saturday, killing at least 17 and injuring 13, according to the bus company and government officials. The Vallarta Plus bus was carrying 35 passengers from the resort city of Puerto Vallarta to Guadalajara before dawn when it ran off a mountain road and plunged down a 250-meter ravine, the Nayarit state prosecutor's office said in a news release. The office reported 17 dead: 13 men, three women and a 1-year-old child. The bus's driver, identified as 28-year-old Madiel Coronado, was among the injured. However, the state's Red Cross spokesman Miguel Langarica said at least 18 people were killed and 13 injured - five gravely. The discrepancy could not immediately be reconciled.
