Eight Killed in Highway Pile-Up in Brazil

SAO PAULO – At least eight people are dead and 52 others are injured after a 10-vehicle accident on a road in Brazil’s southeastern Minas Gerais state, police said.

The pile-up, which involved five automobiles, four trucks and a bus, happened in the stretch near Francisco Sa, some 470 kilometers (292 miles) from the state capital, Belo Horizonte.

Firefighters are still at the scene conducting rescue work, which means that the number of casualties could increase, first responders told EFE.

According to police, at least four of the eight killed died from burn injuries, as one of the trucks was transporting fuel, which caught fire.

Among the injured survivors is a man who suffered third-degree burns in 90 percent of his body.

The cause of the accident is still under investigation.
