A bus carrying kindergarten children on a day trip to a crocodile farm in western Mexico crashed on Wednesday, killing at least eight people.

Police say another 20 were injured.

The cause of the accident was not immediately known, but the vehicle reportedly struck a building near a bend in the road.

Bus crashes are common in Latin America, where road conditions are often poor and driving can be erratic, Reuters reports.
