BEIJING — Authorities say a slick of rice wine spilled from a truck is to blame for a traffic accident that killed 12 people in central China.

The Xinxian country government in Henan province says a bus overturned on a road that was slippery because of the rice wine, and that another freight truck then crashed into the bus.
