Beijing: Thirteen people were killed and 64 others injured in multiple vehicle pile-up on an icy expressway in central China's Hunan province on Friday.

Freezing rain is making driving along the expressway from Changde to Zhangjiajie in Hunan extremely dangerous, traffic authorities warned.

Four suffered serious injuries while more than 60 were slightly injured.

All the injured are being treated in four hospitals in Changde, official Xinhua news agency report said.
