Crash Involving 31 Vehicles Leaves 14 Dead in China

The accident happened after a heavy truck lost control and crashed into a line of vehicles waiting at a toll station in the northwestern province of Gansu

In another road accident, police in northwestern China said a bus in the city of Hanzhong, Shaanxi province, lost control Saturday afternoon, swerving into traffic and killing at least two people.

A HEAVY-DUTY TRUCK carrying a dismantled tower crane crashed into a line of 31 automobiles at a toll station on the Lanzhou-Haikou expressway in the suburb of Lanzhou, Northwest China's Gansu province, on Saturday evening.

31 vehicles were involved in the horror crash, and 10 of the 44 injured were in a serious condition as a result, China Daily reported.

The truck driver is being investigated by police.

The accidents follow a dramatic October 28 highway crash in southwestern China that killed 15 people. Cause of the accident is under investigation. He said brake failure was behind the pile-up, but police are now working on the cause.

The passenger, only identified as a 48-year-old woman with the surname Liu, was angry at the driver for missing her stop, police said.

In the meantime, Gansu provincial authorities have ordered unsafe sections of expressways to be inspected.
