Four people have lost lives and 43 others sustained injuries in a traffic accident on Kabul-Balkh highway.
The crash happened between a “404” model passenger bus and a truck in Dilkhagi area of Samangan province last night.
The passenger bus was traveling from Mazar-e-Sharif, capital of Balkh province, to Kabul and the truck was coming from the opposite side.
Abdul Qadir Panjsheri, traffic police officer of Samangan province said the accident took place because of the careless driving.
“There are children among the victims,” he added.
Those wounded have been transferred to hospitals in Ayback and Mazar-e-Sharif. The death toll is likely to increase as some of those wounded are in critical condition.
Unprofessional driving and bad road conditions usually turn into traffic accidents in Afghanistan leaving hundreds of people killed and wounded every year.
