The bus was carrying 45 people to La Rica when the accident occurred in the Los Aguacatales region on Monday.

All 45 passengers reportedly survived the initial crash but the bus hit Africanised bee hives with the angry insects then swarming the vehicle, killing four people in the process, despite them surviving the actual plunge.

Locals tried to help the people inside the bus but they were unable to reach them due to the swarm of bees.

Eventually, medics and firefighters arrived on the scene and rescued the injured, who were then taken to hospital.

Footage from the scene shows a number of the injured passengers being loaded onto the back of a pickup truck before they were taken to hospital.

The injuries and current status of the other passengers has not yet been made public by local officials.

It is currently unclear how many people were injured in the incident, and an investigation is ongoing.
