Expo bus crash kills one

ONE passenger was killed and another 29 people injured when an Expo shuttle bus crashed into a heavy truck late last night on a highway in the Pudong New Area, police said today.

Two of the injured, an unidentified man and woman, were still in critical condition this afternoon, according to the Nanhui Center Hospital. A hospital official surnamed Zhang said the woman suffered a severe head wound and the man, about 20, had his left leg amputated. Both are in an unstable condition.

The accident happened about 9:30pm on the S32 Shenjiahu Expressway near the Chuannanfeng down ramp in the Nanhui area. The truck driving in front of the No.16 bus suddenly braked, which caused the bus to crash into its rear, witnesses said.

The impact cracked the windscreen and destroyed the bus's front, one witness said.

The cause of the accident was still being investigated, the police said. The truck driver is being questioned.
