The daily Le Matin said the pilgrims were traveling to the northern part of the country Friday night when the accident occurred on a highway near the town of Marchand Dessalines.
The Saturday report said some of the passengers were crushed by the truck and others drowned. A police spokesman couldn't be reached for comment.
Traffic accidents with double-digit death tolls occur regularly in impoverished Haiti, where road safety rules are seldom enforced or respected.
