15 killed in 31-vehicle pile-up on Chinese highway

A truck hit 31 cars and killed at least 13 people after the driver lost control Saturday night at an expressway toll booth in northwestern China, Chinese state media reported.

Xinhua says a traffic accident involving more than 30 vehicles occurred on an expressway in the city of Lanzhou on Saturday evening.

On Sunday morning, local government officials said that 10 of the 44 people injured in the crash are in serious condition.

Dozens more were injured when the vehicle collided with a line of waiting cars in Lanzhou, the provincial capital of Gansu, on Saturday.

The truck driver, who was only slightly injured in the crash, is under police guard and is being investigated.
