A 28-year-old woman and her 11-month-old boy, whom she was holding in her arms, were killed after the truck ran over them and dragged them several meters before stopping.

The truck was carrying a full load, officials said.

The woman's husband surnamed Mu, who was injured in the accident, said the family was stopping for a red light when the dump truck hit them.

Both Mu's daughter and nephew were unconscious after the accident, but were out of danger later on Wednesday, doctors said.

Officials said they had launched a criminal investigation into the company after the latest accident.
