There was a head-an-collision. The impact was so heavy that it attracted the attention of almost all people in the neighborhood. In a few minutes, there was a lager crowd surrounding the two cars, both of which had been overturned. Their engines had been completely wrecked and the drivers and the passengers in the front seats had been killed. Those sitting behind had been seriously hurt and shocked. Luckily, neither of the vehicles had caught fire.

With the help of some onlookers, they lifted the cars and helped the passengers still alive to get out.
