A big-size freight vehicle carrying 3,300 crates of grapes onboard capsized while going on the expressway in Lanzhou, northwest China's Gansu Province, on September 5. On hearing the accident, local villagers swarmed to the site grabbing and looting.

We did stop them, but most of them did not listen to us, said local police.

"I would lose my family fortune in this accident." the driver cried.

The accident now is still under investigation.
