KANDAHAR CITY (Pajhwok): Eight people were injured in a traffic accident on the Kabulinfo-icon-Kandahar highway in southern Kandahar province on Saturday.

The head-on collision between a passenger bus and a wagon took place in Akhund Sahib area of Daman district, the governor’s spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

He said eight people in both the vehicles were injured and had been taken to the Mirwais hospital.

An official at the hospital said eight injured people, including a woman, had been brought to the hospital and their injuries were not life-threatening.

The Kabul-Kandahar highway is notorious for accidents and local officials blame such tragedies on reckless driving. But passengers say in addition to reckless driving, the road’s rundown condition is also a reason behind accidents.
