#Khairpur bus crash leaves 13 dead and 20 injured >>

At least thirteen people were killed and 20 others injured when a bus collided with a truck in southern Pakistan on Wednesday morning, Dunya News reported.

The accident happened on Mehran Highway near Khairpur district, 450 kilometres (300 miles) north of Karachi, the capital of southern Sindh province.

Rescue teams arrived at the scene and shifted the bodies and injured to Gambat Institute of Medical Sciences and other hospitals in Khairpur.


As per initial details, the speeding truck loaded with fruits lost control and rammed into a bus coming from opposite direction.

Deputy Commissioner Munawar Ali Mithani reported that the incident occurred due to over-speeding. Further investigation is underway.

Pakistan has an appalling record of fatal traffic accidents due to poor roads, badly maintained vehicles and reckless driving. Crashes killing dozens of people are not uncommon.

The recovery equipment available to Pakistani emergency services is often basic, and when crashes happen away from major towns, rescue efforts can take some time, reducing injured passengers  chances of survival.

In November 2014, more than 50 people were killed when a bus collided head-on with the truck near Khairpur district. The bus was carrying passengers from northwestern Swat valley to Karachi.

In April last year, a bus smashed into a tractor-trailer in a high-speed collision in Sindh, killing 42 people, while in March a horrific crash between two buses and a petrol tanker left 35 dead, with many burned alive when the fuel ignited. Dunya News
