At least 41 police officers were killed Monday and some reportedly were trapped after their bus flipped and fell off a bridge in northern Argentina.

Authorities say the crash happened early Monday while a convoy of three buses with gendarmes officers was traveling near Salta, a city about 932 miles north of Buenos Aires.

“For reasons that are still unknown, the bus lost control while entering the bridge and fell into the creek bed below,” said a statement issued by the National Gendarmerie, a special police force typically charged with patrolling frontier regions.

Gustavo Diaz, head of a group of volunteer firefighters in the area, told Argentine state agency Telam that 20 police were severely injured in the 65-foot drop and were being treated in area hospitals.
