At Least 15 Killed after Truck Loses Control on Chinese Highway

BEIJING At least 15 people were killed and 44 were injured after a heavy truck lost control and crashed into dozens of vehicles waiting at a toll booth on a highway near Lanzhou, a city in northwestern China, the police reported on Sunday.

The accident took place on Saturday evening on the Lanzhou-Haikou expressway when a tower-crane truck lost control due to brake failure and crashed into waiting cars, according to the driver who suffered light injuries and is under police custody pending investigation.

Ten of the injured are in a critical condition and the number of deaths could rise in the next few hours, the police said in a statement cited by state broadcaster CCTV.

The Gansu provincial authorities have demanded that dangerous sections of expressways in the entire state be examined to prevent accidents in future.
