Two people have been left dead and 32 injured in this massive crash that was caused by a lorry with brake problems hitting at least two vehicles when it veered into oncoming traffic.

The incident took place in the district of San Mateo, which is located in Huarochiri Province in the Lima Region in western Peru on Tuesday, 16th November, at around 7am.

The footage, which was caught on a home CCTV camera, shows a lorry with brake problems hitting the vehicle in front of it, which appears to be a small bus, as it tries to avoid it on a busy road.

The bus is sent crashing into a stopped lorry by the side of the road before it overturns.

The lorry then veers into the other lane before coming off the road. A minivan approaching in the other direction appears to leave the road so as to allow the lorry to pass, but it ends up directly in its path instead.

The lorry crashes into it as both vehicles disappear off screen in a cloud of dust.

Two people died in the incident and 32, including children, were injured, according to local media outlet La Republica, which reported that the lorry had a brake problem, with its driver losing control of the vehicle and speeding as a result.

The driver of the first vehicle hit by the lorry said that two of his 10 passengers died in the crash.

The victims have been identified as Fabian Guillermo Gonzalez, 74, and Claudia Pomacaja de Sanchez, 56.
