Islamabad: Seven people were killed, and 18 others injured in a road accident in Pakistan’s south Sindh province, rescue teams said.
The accident happened in Kashmore district of the province, where a passenger van collided with a truck at a main highway on Monday, the state-run Rescue 1122 said in a statement.
The van’s driver could not see the truck coming from the opposite direction due to low visibility caused by fog and hit into it, the statement added.
The injured people had been shifted to a nearby hospital, where five of them were in critical condition.
Presently, Pakistan is experiencing fluctuations in weather patterns, leading to the emergence of dense fog in various regions during both morning and night hours, which causes certain sections of highways to close temporarily due to limited visibility.
For open highways, authorities have issued guidelines urging drivers to exercise caution while navigating these areas.
