Road crashes kill 4, injure 25 in Baghlan

PUL-E-KHUMRI; Two road crashes have killed three commuters in northern Baghlan and another in Faryab provinces late on Friday, officials said Saturday. “Three people were killed and 17 others wounded, after a passenger van skidded of the road and plunged into a ditch due to intense foggy weather in Salang-e-Shamali area of Baghlan province,” Safiullah, a senior provincial traffic official told media.
Hours later, elsewhere, in Malkhan area of the province, a corolla-type car’s collision with a head-on trailer, claimed one life and injured five others, according to Qari Nazir Abedi, head of the provincial traffic department.
A man along with two of his children also sustained critical injuries in a similar incident at about 4:30 local time Friday, in Shirin Tagab district of northern Faryab province, eyewitness said.
The wounded have been taken to the nearby health center, according to the officials.
Reckless driving and poorly built roads are mostly blamed for being behind the deadly accidents that often claim the lives of travelers in the mountainous country.
