Five people were killed and one injured after two cars and a minivan taxi collided in the Ukrainian sea port of Mariupol, the country's transportation ministry said.
The ministry said in a statement that a Daewoo-Lanos car skidded on a slippery road into oncoming lane, where it hit another Lanos car and the two crashed then into a minivan taxi, which carried six passengers at that time.
"Five people from both cars were killed and one was injured and hospitalized," the statement said adding that passengers from the minivan emerged unhurt.
The ministry also said that all three vehicles caught on fire after the crash and burnt down completely.
