A seven-year-old child was killed in a traffic accident in the provincial capital, according to Taliban security officials in Kapisa province.

The incident occurred at 5:00 p.m. on Monday, June 6, on the Naw Abad – Deh Baba Ali route in the heart of Kapisa, according to the Taliban police office in Kapisa province.

Officials said the youngster was killed after she was struck by a motorcycle while crossing the street.

The motorcycle driver’s negligence was considered to be the cause of the accident.

Road accidents have increased in various parts of the country, resulting in numerous fatalities.

Residents, particularly children, have long been killed by irresponsible drivers, damaged roads, and small roadways in Kabul’s northern provinces.

Traffic regulations violations, deteriorated roads, speeding, and the absence of traffic signs are the primary causes of traffic accidents in Afghanistan, with deaths occurring every day.
