At least 13 people were killed and several others injured when a passenger wagon collided with a bus in Balochistan’s Mastung district on Saturday.

Levies officials said the driver of the van lost control due to over-speeding and collided with a bus coming from the opposite side.

The injured were rushed to Civil Hospital Quetta for treatment. The condition of seven injured is to be critical and doctors fear an increase in the number of dead.

In Pakistan, around 9,000 road accidents are reported to the police every year since 2011, killing more than 4,500 people on average, according to figures from the Pakistan Bureau of Statistics (PBS).
