world Updated: Aug 15, 2011 18:46 IST

Thirty-six people were injured, five of them critically, after two vehicles collided on a highway in China's east Zhejiang Province.

The accident happened yesterday when a bus rear-ended a semi-trailer truck on a section of the highway linking Zhejiang's Longyou County and the city of Lishui, police said.

The 36 injured, including four children were on board the bus which was over-crowded with 49 passengers against its designed capacity of 46, they said. The rear-end collision is the third bus-related highway traffic accident that has happened in 24 hours in Zhejiang, Xinhua reported.
