19 die in Pakistan bus crash: official

QUETTA, Pakistan, July 3, 2022 (BSS/AFP) - At least 19 people died and 14
were injured when a bus plunged into a ravine near a small town in Pakistan's
west, an official said on Sunday.

The bus skidded off a slippery road near Danisar in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa
province as it was en route to Quetta from Rawalpindi, local official Ejaz
Jaffer told AFP.

Pakistan has an appalling road safety record, with frequent accidents due to
poorly maintained routes and vehicles -- as well as reckless driving.

At least 22 people died when a minibus plunged into a ravine in Balochistan
last month.
