Police say that a bus lost its brakes, flipped over and tumbled down an embankment in Ecuador, killing at least 13 people and injuring another 37.

Police chief Gustavo Teran said Wednesday's accident took place in Tungurahua providence.

Teran said that speeding may have contributed to the accident.

Traffic accidents are the second leading cause of death in Ecuador, according to the government.
