The crash involved 56 vehicles on the Beijing-Kunming highway in China’s Shanxi province around 9 a.m. Monday, according to state news agency Xinhua.
“The fog was heavy, so I drove slowly when I exit the tunnel,” one driver involved in the incident told state-run CCTV. “I saw two vehicles horizontally blocking the road, so I stepped on the brake.”
It had been snowing and raining before the accident, which also injured 37 people, Xinhua said.
