“At least 15 people were killed and five more were injured,” the agency writes, citing a report from deputy fire chief Adrian Diaz Chavez.

The cause of the accident was a transport truck that crashed into at least nine cars at a toll station on a highway in central Mexico, followed by a fire.

According to preliminary information, the brakes of the truck failed.

In August, in the Peruvian Andes, a bus fell into an abyss about 200 m deep, killing at least 15 people.
