Fire fighters battle raging Inferno along Chinese Highway, as 40 vehicles collide with each other

 

At least three people have been killed after more than 40 vehicles rear-ended one another in thick fog on a highway in China, according to Chinese authorities.

The pileup triggered a huge fire on the Baotou–Maoming Expressway in the north-western province of Shaanxi this morning, provincial officials claimed.

Another six people were wounded in the serial collisions and rescue efforts were ongoing, state media said.

Footage filmed by an eyewitness shows the road engulfed in raging flames, which were burning through wrecked vehicles.

Authorities dispatched 16 fire engines and 105 firefighters to the scene, and the blaze was ‘brought under control’ about an hour and 40 minutes later, CCTV wrote.

Rescuers were still searching for survivors when the fire was put out.
