    "An old East German IFA military vehicle converted for hauling passengers . . ."


    Manufactured by IFA (Industrieverband Fahrzeugbau = "Industrial Association for Vehicle Construction") from 1952 to 1964. Probably had 50 yrs service in Nicaragua.
    In a mountainous region affected by the recent hurricanes, so the base of the road was likely unstable. A tragedy.

    Supposedly, the brakes failed.

    But,, as anyone who has driven on muddy Nica roads will tell you, it's like skiing .
    You don't make any abrupt turns. Inertia rules.

    Nor do you step on the brakes too hard. See "inertia rules" above.


    That is an interesting looking truck.

    If someone wants a higher resolution pic,, give me your email in a PM.


    It looks like the truck was already overturned when it came to an abrupt stop occasioned by hitting two trees head on.
