According to local sources, seven people were injured when a corolla wagon vehicle collided with a truck in the northern Faryab province of Afghanistan.

The accident early on Friday, July 1st, happened approximately 697 kilometres away from the capital of Afghanistan, Kabul, as the truck was travelling to Kabul, provincial authorities said in a statement.

The traffic accident that has wounded at least 7 people has occurred in the Khwaja Sabz Posh district of Faryab province, in the northern regions of Afghanistan.

The wounded, including the corolla wagon vehicle driver, were said to be transported to the nearest hospital, where the health officials stated that their condition was critical.

According to the security officials in the province, the driver’s carelessness is considered to have been the cause of this accident.

The number of traffic accidents has recently increased in several regions of Afghanistan, as two operational engineers from the Da Afghanistan Breshna Sherkat were killed in a traffic accident on their way home from work, while another traffic accident in northern Samangan province killed one and injured four others.

Drivers disregarding traffic laws, deteriorated roads, speeding, and the absence of traffic signals are the primary factors to the daily fatalities caused by traffic accidents in Afghanistan.
