KARACHI: At least seven people, including four women, were killed in a road accident between a passenger coach and a van trailer at Nooriabad, rescue sources informed Geo News.
Reportedly, the passenger coach was en route to Naushahro Feroze
The bodies and injured were immediately shifted to Jamshoro Hospital for autopsy and treatment respectively.
Earlier a week back, as many as 20 people were killed in a deadly accident in Khairpur.
The traffic accident took place when, according to police officials, a truck laden with coal en route from Ranipur to Sukkur attempted to overtake a passenger van on the Shah Hussain bypass.
ASP Rai Mazhar Iqbal told Geo News that the heavily loaded truck lost control while overtaking and fell on the van, which was on its way to Punjab from Karachi.
The deceased and the injured were shifted to Civil Hospital, Khairpur after being recovered from the crushed van. The van had to be cut open after the truck on top of it was removed with the help of cranes.
Motorway officials said later the incident, which occurred around 7am, was caused by overspeeding of both vehicles as well as the dense early morning fog.
