At least 20 dead in Nigerian bus-car crash

MAIDUGURI, Nigeria  — Authorities in Nigeria said Monday that a bus has crashed into a car in northern Nigeria, killing more than 20 people.
A witness told The Associated Press the vehicles burst into flame during the collision and that villagers tried to stop the fire by using buckets of water drawn from a well.
At least 10 people were injured in the head-on collision in Yobe state, which borders Niger.
Fatal traffic crashes are common in Nigeria, where old roads are rarely maintained and drivers often ignore speed limits and safety regulations.
