PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti — Police say 17 people died when a group taxi slammed into a truck on a blind curve in rural Haiti.

Police spokesman Frantz Lerebours says the accident occured early Saturday in the southern peninsula town of Aquin.

Some Haitian radio stations reported the vehicles were both trying to avoid the charred remains of a flaming barricade set up by protesters during last weekend's presidential election.

Vehicle accidents are common on Haiti's poorly maintained and constructed roads. A systemic lack of health care means they are often fatal.
