(0408 CR M02)ROAD TUNNEL HORROR DATELINE: April 8, 2011 LENGTH: 00:00:46 VO Four people have been killed after a traffic accident in an expressway tunnel sparked an explosion. Rescuers pulled out two bodies from an expressway tunnel after a traffic accident caused two tank trucks to explode early Friday morning in northwest China's Gansu Province. Witnesses say the blast occurred after the two tank trucks smashed together in the tunnel. Firemen were still working to putting out the fire. But they said the rescue work was hampered by the high temperatures in the tunnel. They said more people were likely to be trapped inside the tunnel - meaning the death toll could rise. Altogether three vehicles, including two tank trucks and one cargo van were ruined in the blast and ensuing fire. Tunnel facilities were also damaged. The expressway has been closed.
