4 dead, 23 wounded in traffic accidents
PUL-I-KHUMRI/MAIMANA (Pajhwok): At least four individuals have been killed and 23 others wounded in three separate traffic accidents in northern Baghlan and Faryab provinces, officials said on Saturday.
Faryab Traffic Management head Karimullah said five people were injured on Friday when a car bumped into two vehicles parked in the Chahar Samawar Square area of Lodin Street.
“In a second accident, a police pick-up collided with a car in the limits of the second police district, resulting in the death of a 60-year-old salesman and injuries to a young man,” he added.
Karimullah linked the accidents to recklessness driving. Zabihullah Shuja, Baghlan police spokesman, said three people including a woman were killed and 17 others wounded in the Silo neighbourhood of Pul-i-Khumri, the capital of Baghlan.
He said the accident took place when a Corolla car heading from Shamraq to Pul-i-Kumri veered off the road and collided with a truck.
