Bus-truck collision kills 11 & injures 13 in Wuzhishan, Hainan
The accident occurred at 4:00pm (0800 GMT) when a medium-sized bus collided with a truck, killing both drivers and nine others near the city of Wuzhishan, the South China Sea Network news website said.
The 13 injured, including four people in serious condition, were rushed to hospital in the mountain city, the website said.
The accident was the latest in a series of recent fatal crashes on China’s roads, including one two weeks ago in which 20 people, 18 of them children, were killed when a hugely overloaded school bus collided head-on with a truck in northwestern China.
Almost 70,000 people died in road accidents in China in 2010, or about 190 fatalities a day, according to police statistics — down from nearly 99,000 deaths on the roads in 2005.
