Overloaded Chinese Mini-van Packed with 64 Children Crashes into Coal Truck- 18 Dead

China has the deadliest roads in the world. And the story of this accident deals with this problem at many levels. Firstly the van had 64 kids which is a horrible thing to do. The idea of sacrificing safety to make a buck is horrible.

Secondly is the lax enforcement of china’s laws. If the cops were not so busy collecting bribes, perhaps they would do their jobs and enforce the laws.

But alas they do no and we see the result.

This mini van was crumpled as it smashed into a coal truck and 18 little children died.
