A bus collided with a train in eastern Cuba, killing at least 28 people and injuring another 73, including 15 in critical condition, state media reported Sunday. Authorities were still investigating the cause of the crash, which occurred around midday Saturday in the province of Granma, about 800 kilometers (about 500 miles) east of Havana, according to a statement read on state television. Cuba's state media, which typically shy away from reporting extensively about any kind of bloodshed, provided only sketchy details and not even Granma Province's digital newspaper, La Demajagua, carried news of the accident. The Communist Youth newspaper Juventud Rebelde had only a short story Sunday reporting that the collision took place at a railroad crossing near a bridge in the small town of Veguita, in Yara municipality.
