The Ministry of Public Security has sent a team, led by Vice Minister Liu Zhao, to the scene to help guide the rescue work and investigate the incident, according to a release from the traffic administration bureau affiliated to the Ministry of Public Security.

The Ministry of Public Security has also sent inspection teams to other key places across China to screen out potential safety hazards and avoid major traffic accidents.
