A 40-car accident on the highway leading from Buenos Aires to Rosario has left four dead and at least 25 injured. The accident occurred Wednesday, as 40 vehicles collided, including 22 trucks and two buses. Reports say that 8 trucks were engulfed with flames, and the death count could grow due to serious injuries. Officials blame thick fog and motorists exceeding the stated speed limit as the cause of the accident. This was the first major traffic accident since the Mar del Plata train/bus collision in March, where over 20 people were killed.
