A bus accident in Uthal (Lasbela District, Balochistan) has taken 14 lives and injured several, rescue sources said on Tuesday.
According to the details, the accident took place at Sakan near Wayaro Farm when the passenger coach driver lost control of the speeding vehicle.
The deceased include children as well, the rescue officials said.
The bodies and injured have been shifted to the District Headquarters Hospital, Uthal while four patients who are in critical condition have been shifted to Karachi.
The ill-fated passenger coach was en route Karachi from Panjgur, according to the Levies personnel.
In a separate incident, at least six people were killed and two sustained serious injuries after being hit by a speeding car at Islamabad’s Srinagar Highway.
A speeding car hit other vehicles at G-11, Islamabad, leaving six dead and others severely wounded and fled from the scene.
Last week, it was reported that a government employee and his family have been found dead at their residence in Islamabad with initial investigation suggesting that it could be owing to suffocation due to a leakage in a cylinder.
“A cylinder has been found in the room.” the Islamabad police said adding that the Lohi Bher police, within whose limits the incident occurred, were further investigating the matter.
The bodies were then shifted to a hospital for medical examination to ascertain the cause of the death.
It is pertinent to mention here that cylinder-related incidents have in the past also claimed the lives of innocent people in the federal capital.
