Police say road accident involving 2 trucks, 2 buses in SW Pakistan has killed at least 25 | Fox News
Pakistani police say at least 25 people died and over 30 were injured
in a multi-vehicle collision involving two trucks and two passenger
buses on a coastal highway in the country's southwest.
officer Ahmed Nawaz says the accident took place early on Saturday near
the town of Gadani, when a bus bound for the port city of Karachi
collided head-on with a truck coming from the opposite direction.
says the second bus and truck then piled up onto the two vehicles and
all caught fire, mainly because the buses were also smuggling Iranian
gasoline- and diesel-filled canisters on board.
He says most of the victims were severely burned and that the death toll may increase.
Bad road infrastructure and poor driving often cause accidents in Pakistan.
