At least 17 people were killed and 17 others were injured on Sunday when a bus carrying migrant workers collided with a semi-trailer in Hebei Province of north China, Xinhua news agency reported.

The agency said that the bus carrying 34 migrant workers rear-ended a semi-trailer that was parked at the roadside.

Serious traffic accidents are common in China due to lax driving habits, overloaded vehicles and bad road conditions.
