4 Killed in Moscow Crash

At least four people died and seven others were badly injured in a multicar pileup in southern Moscow early Monday, Interfax reported.

A Mercedes drove into the wrong lane on Volgogradsky Prospekt and collided with four oncoming cars at about 1 a.m., the report said.

The Mercedes caught fire while its five passengers were trapped inside. Three of them, two women, both 22, and a man, 23, died at the scene, while another woman died later in the hospital. The driver was hospitalized in critical condition, as were six other people in cars struck by the Mercedes.

It was not clear why the Mercedes entered the wrong lane.
