GUIYANG, Jan. 24 (Xinhua) -- Eleven people were killed and three injured in two road accidents in south China, local authorities said Tuesday.

Six people were killed at about 8:30 p.m. Monday after a sport utility vehicle (SUV) plunged into a 100-meter-deep mountain valley in Pu'an County in southwest China's Guizhou Province, the county government said Tuesday in a statement.

Five passengers were found dead in the car and rescuers retrieved the body of a missing passenger hours later.

In another accident on Tuesday, five people were dead and three injured after two cars crashed in south China's island province of Hainan.

The accident occurred at about 5 a.m. Tuesday when a car rammed into the guardrail of a highway in the city of Wenchang and bounced back to the middle of the road, causing collision with a car from behind, local traffic police said in a statement.

The crash left three dead and five injured at the scene. Two people died later at hospital, the statement said, adding that three others were still being treated at hospital.

The cause of the two accidents are still under investigation.
