The State Service for Emergency Situations said in a statement Saturday that a mini-bus and a truck collided in early Saturday on the highway connecting capital of Kiev with the Black Sea port of Odessa. One of those killed is an 8-year-old child. Another injured person is in the hospital in a grave condition.
