Bolivia’s ex-prez faces charges in deadly crash

LA PAZ, Bolivia – Police in Bolivia say former President Jaime Paz Zamora will face homicide charges for a car crash that killed a man.

The transportation director in the southern city of Tarija says the driver of the other car in the accident died Wednesday, meaning the charge against Paz Zamora will be increased to homicide.

Gonzalo Cuellar says Paz Zamora was driving to his house on the outskirts of Tarija early Monday when his vehicle crossed into the other lane and crashed head-on with the other vehicle.

Telephone calls to Paz Zamora’s family seeking comment were not answered.

Paz Zamora suffered bruises to his face and chest in the wreck. He was Bolivia’s president from 1989 to 1993.
