At least 39 people have been killed after a passenger coach fell into a ravine in Pakistan’s Lasbela on Sunday morning, reported.
According to the Pakistan-based news outlet, the vehicle was travelling from Quetta to Karachi with as many as 48 passengers on board. ‘Due to speeding, the coach crashed into the pillar of a bridge while taking a U-turn near Balochistan’s Lasbela. The vehicle subsequently careened into a ravine and then caught fire,’ Dawn.com quoted Lasbela Assistant Commissioner Hamza Anjum as saying.
While Anjum stated that three people, including a child and a woman, have been rescued alive, he feared that the number of casualties could rise.
