Eleven kindergarten children were killed on Wednesday when the eight-seater van they were in collided with a truck loaded with sand on Wednesday in Shandong province.

The van driver was also killed and three people were injured. The accident occurred at about 7:30 am in Chaoshui, a township in the coastal city of Penglai, when the van was taking the children to the kindergarten, the Penglai publicity office said.

Photographs online show the truck pressed up against the minivan on one side with sand covering most of the minivan.
