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

Haiti taxi-bus accident
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.
