A 5.3 magnitude earthquake struck a remote county in China's Xinjiang region on Wednesday, causing traffic chaos that left five people injured.
The quake struck Toksun County, about 100 miles from the regional capital Urumqi, at 9:53 am, according to the China Earthquake Network Center.
China's Xinhua news agency reported that the quake caused several huge boulders to roll down a mountain onto a road, leading to a 17-car pileup, which left two people seriously injured and another three hurt.
The center reported two large aftershocks followed almost immediately afterwards, measured at 4.2 and 4.1 magnitude.
