BEIJING (AP) — Chinese state media say 12 people have been killed and 19 others injured in two back-to-back highway accidents in southwest China.

The official Xinhua News Agency says that a truck hit a car Saturday afternoon on an expressway between Shantou and Kunming cities, killing three and injuring two.

Xinhua says an 11-vehicle pileup then occurred 14 minutes later and 410 feet (125 meters) away on the same highway. The second accident killed nine people and injured 17 others.

Xinhua says the causes of the accidents are under investigation.
