70-car pile-up in Xinjiang highway

Dense fog led to a 70-car pile up in northwestern China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region.

Five people suffered serious injuries in the crash, which occurred on a highway linking the provincial capital Urumqi with Kuytun on Tuesday morning.

Rescuers say heavy fog reduced visibility to about 10 meters, and the incident began when a truck suddenly braked, leading to dozens more vehicles colliding.
