The crash, which left another 20 injured, happened on a highway in the state of Quintana Roo, located on the eastern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula and well known as home to the resort city of Cancun.

According to CBS News, at least seven American passengers are among the two dozen injured - but authorities have yet to release the nationalities of those dead.

Martin said investigators were working to determine the cause of the crash, which occurred as the bus was on its way to the ruins at Chacchoben, about 110 miles (175 kilometers) south of Tulum.

Video of the crash's aftermath showed a bus on its side in a wooded area off the roadway.

The cruise line is in contact with local authorities, Torres said.

The U.S. Embassy in Mexico also added: "The protection of U.S. citizens overseas is one of the highest priorities for the State Department". He says they had been driving about 35 to 40 minutes before the accident.
