China expressway accident kills at least 32

AT least 32 people were killed when a truck and coach collided on an expressway in northeastern China today, state-run Xinhua news agency reported.

The accident occurred on a section of an expressway that was undergoing maintenance in the city of Fuxin in Liaoning province, it said.

China’s roads are among the most dangerous in the world, with proper driving rules and traffic laws widely flouted.

Nearly 73,500 people died in road accidents in 2008, or just over 200 fatalities per day, according to police statistics.
