In Pakistan, traffic accidents result in thousands of deaths and injuries every year.

Accidents like this are common in the country due to damaged roads that are often poorly maintained.

Earlier this year, 40 people were killed after a bus crashed in Balochistan.

The bus was carrying 44 passengers when it crashed and the bodies of 40 people including women and children were recovered.

Another incident occurred in 2019 where at least 22 people were killed, after a bus rammed into a hill in Pakistan following a break failure.
