WARNING - VIDEO CONTAINS GRAPHIC CONTENT (ROUGH CUT ONLY - NO REPORTER NARRATION) At least 32 people were killed and seven were injured in Mexico on Sunday (June 24) after the bus they were travelling in overturned on a wet road in the southwestern state of Guerrero, according to authorities. Bodies of men, women and children were lined up and numbered as police gathered evidence and tried to identify the victims. Police and emergency crews worked for hours at the accident scene, about a 2-1/2 hours drive southwest of Mexico City. Many of the people inside the bus were reportedly wearing T-shirts emblazoned with the logo of Mexico's Labour Party (PT), a small grouping in Congress supporting leftist presidential hopeful Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador. Mexico holds a presidential election on July 1. Bus crashes and other road accidents are common on Mexico's main roads, causing hundreds of deaths a year.
