At least 40 people have been killed in a bus accident that exploded after falling off a bridge in southwest Pakistan, a government representative said today.
“The bodies … cannot be identified,” said Hamza Anjum, an official in the Lasbela district of Balochistan province, where the accident took place.
He added that three survivors were rescued, pointing out that the bus was carrying 48 people when it hit a pillar before falling off the bridge it was crossing.
The roads in Pakistan are among the most dangerous in the world, and the country witnesses many bloody traffic accidents.
Buses often carry more passengers than they can handle.
According to the World Health Organization, more than 27,000 people were killed on Pakistan’s roads in 2018.
