Unfortunately, the Expo had its first big accident late Monday night after a shuttle bus leaving the site collided with a heavy truck. 35 were injured and one passenger was killed. The victim, 45-year-old carpenter Zheng Gao, had been visiting the grounds with his wife and son.
Responsibility for the accident is unclear, but the driver was taken by the police. Witness said the truck was carrying tons of steel tubes and suddenly lost control, braking hard. Expo Bus 16, right behind it, was hit by falling tubes before colliding with the truck.
