7 killed, 32 injured in two major road accidents in S Korea

Seoul: At least seven people have been killed and another 32 injured in two major traffic pile-ups in South Korea, the South Korean news agency Yonhap reported on Saturday.
The first crash occurred early Saturday when some 10 vehicles, including cargo trucks, collided on a highway en route to Yeongcheon in North Gyeongsang province, some 300 kilometres south of Seoul. Some 20 other vehicles following behind also crashed, according to the Yonhap report. Six people were killed and 14 injured in that pile-up.
The other collision happened around the same time on the opposite side of the highway involving about 20 vehicles, authorities said. (DPA)
