According to local Taliban officials in the southeastern province of Ghazni, a traffic accident caused by a collision between a vehicle and a motorcycle killed a mother and her son and injured two others.

According to the authorities, a car and a motorcycle collided in the Tasang area of the Deh Yak district yesterday, Sunday, July 17th.

Ghazni province’s traffic department director stated that the traffic accident killed a mother and a son while wounding a girl and the driver.

In a traffic accident earlier this week, a 580-type passenger bus and a tractor-trailer collided in Pol-e-Khomri city, Baghlan province’s capital, leaving eight people dead and 11 injured.

The condition of the wounded, who were taken to the nearest hospital was told to be critical, according to the health officials.

The frequency of traffic incidents involving passenger fatalities has increased in recent months, despite the fact that neither the appropriate institution nor a thorough investigation has established the cause.

However, traffic rule violations, dangerous routes, negligence, and a lack of traffic signs are the leading causes of road accidents in Afghanistan, where people are killed every day.
