At least six people were burned to death and four more were seriously injured Wednesday when leaking solvents caught fire in a 12-car pile-up in Tultitlan, a small town in Mexico state, which surrounds Mexico City.
The crash took place in the morning when an articulated truck invaded the oncoming lane and smashed head-on into a van, state police said.

This accident caused a series of other collisions near Mexico State outer ring road. Solvents in one of the vehicles escaped and caught fire, burning people, pigs and horses in the vehicles in the pile up.

Two articulated trucks, four smaller trucks, a van and several private cars were involved in the pile up.

The accident caused traffic chaos on the roads linking nearby towns.

Police have not yet been able to identify the victims.
