Witnesses said that the only passengers who saved their lives were the ones setting close to the doors and windows but they also sustained injuries while jumping from the van.

Nine passengers injured in the incident were shifted to Jinnah Hospital in Karachi city for treatment, officials said.

Officials said that the van was converted to Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), a more risky alternative for Petrol and Diesel.
