Two women were killed and three more injured in Shanghai’s Pudong New Area yesterday morning when a large truck crashed into two cars that were stopped along Jiyang Road.
The two cars had been involved in another small accident right before the truck crashed into them, according to Shanghai Daily.
The two women from each car had alighted to deal with accident when the truck slammed into the cars, hurtling them over 10 meters. The women died at the scene. Another three persons were injured and rushed to a local hospital by ambulance.
A 51-year-old woman surnamed Huang was in critical condition. Sun Guixin, a doctor at Shanghai East Hospital, said Huang had multiple injuries and was in shock due to blood loss. She also broke her hip as well as fractured her limbs and injured her neck. The other two victims had small injuries.
The case is currently under investigation.
