90 killed, 114 wounded in gasoline truck explosion
CNN |
"A truck carrying gasoline has crashed into six buses full of passengers, killing up to 90 people and wounding 114 others in southeastern Iran... Most of those killed in Thursday night's accident at a police checkpoint in Nosratabad, about 690 miles southeast of the capital Tehran, were women and children waiting inside the buses... [governor Haidar Ali Nourai] said the accident happened when the truck was unable to stop and smashed into a bus waiting at a police checkpoint in Nosratabad. The fireball then enveloped five other buses. The victims were burnt to death due to a lack of firefighting equipment... The tanker was carrying more than 4,500 gallons of gas."
