China road crash kills 11, injures 9
Eleven people died and nine others were injured after a traffic collision in north China's Hebei province, a report said yesterday.
The crash, involving a bus carrying 19 people and a lorry, happened Friday on a national highway in the city of Zhangjiakou, the official Xinhua news agency reported.
One of the injured is still in a serious condition, the agency cited a city government official as saying.
The drivers of the two vehicles are being treated in hospital under police custody, and the cause of the accident is under investigation.
Deadly road accidents are common in China, where traffic regulations are often flouted or go unenforced by police.
