Bus crash in southwest Pakistan kills at least 40, injures moretext_fields
Quetta: A bus that crashed off a bridge and caught fire in southwest Pakistan left at least 40 passengers dead, a government official said on Sunday, AFP reported.
Hamza Anjum, a senior official of Lasbela district in Balochistan province stated at the site of the accident, “The dead bodies...are beyond recognition.”
Anjum said that three survivors had been saved and that there were 48 people on board the bus when it collided with a structure on the bridge and veered off course.
Pakistan's terrible road safety record is a result of ramshackle motorways, low safety regulations, and reckless driving.
Because passenger buses are usually overcrowded and seatbelt use is not widespread, single-vehicle accidents frequently result in significant mortality tolls.
More than 27,000 people, according to estimates from the World Health Organization, died on Pakistani roads in 2018.
