And in other news, a deadly pile up on a freeway in Inner Mongolia claimed the lives of six and left wreckage spewed across over a mile of road. Local police are investigating.

Six people are dead and another five injured after a massive 31-vehicle pileup on a freeway in China's Inner Mongolia. The accident happened early Thursday morning.

Most of the vehicles involved in the accident were semi trucks loaded with coal, according to local police.

[Lin Xiaohong, Police Officer]:
"The vehicles rear-ended one another due to the poor visibility caused by the fog. The front trucks turned over and the following trucks could not brake in time."

An investigation into the accident is currently underway. For now, the biggest challenge is simply removing the twisted wreckage of tons of cargo trucks.
