A tractor-trailer lost its brakes and killed nine people as it plowed through a residential area in this northern industrial city Sunday. The driver of the rig towing two trailers loaded with 60 metric tons of steel tubes lost control of the vehicle on a major avenue of the Monterrey suburb of Santa Catarina and crashed into pedestrians, cars, dozens of buildings, utility poles and traffic lights before coming to a halt, said Jorge Vargas, civil protection director of Santa Catarina, on Multimedios TV. Vargas said the truck finally stopped as it hit a building and caught fire, leaving behind a 4-kilometers trail of destruction.
