A fiery highway collision between a truck and a bus filled with passengers in Mexico's northwestern Sinaloa state early on Tuesday killed at least 19 people.

Local authorities have yet to announce an official death toll, or how many others were injured in the accident, which took place along a coastal highway that connects the beach front cities of Mazatlan and Los Mochis.

Circulation on the highway was closed due to the accident, according to locan news outlet N+.

Images of the aftermath of the accident showed the charred vehicles still burning, with flames and smoke billowing out, as emergency personnel arrived at the scene.
