Islamabad :  Thirteen people have died in a bus accident in Pakistan. In an accident that occurred on the Islamabad-Lahore highway, five people died at the scene and eight others succumbed to their injuries while receiving treatment.

Out of the 32 injured in the incident, the condition of 19 individuals is reported to be serious. According to the police, the exact cause of the accident has not yet been determined. However, it is speculated that the slippery road due to continuous rainfall throughout the year might have caused the bus to skid into another lane.

According to the Pakistani news website ‘Express Tribune,’ the accident took place in the Kalla Kahar area. There was water present at the scene of the accident. The speeding bus lost control and overturned when it veered into another lane.

A similar major road accident occurred in the same area in the previous month of Phagun. Two cars collided and fell into a nearby ravine. In that incident, 14 people lost their lives.

Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif expressed his sorrow over the accident.”
