Twenty-one people died and about 30 were injured in a car crash along National Route #1 in Arcahaie, the historic Northwestern town about 25 miles from Port-au-Prince.

The fatal wreck happened Wednesday, after a minibus passed one vehicle and collided with a bus coming from the opposite direction, witnesses told Civil Protection. 

Civil Protection and Red Cross workers reported to the scene and transported injured residents to the hospital.
