At least two people were killed, and eight others were injured in a traffic accident in the eastern province of Wardak, Afghanistan, officials said on Saturday. 

According to provincial police spokesperson Mohammad Yusuf Asrar, two persons were killed, and eight others were injured due to the overturn of a mini-bus in the Behsod district of Wardak on Friday. 

Asrar said that the mini-bus overturned due to reckless driving resulting in several casualties. All the injured, including women and children, were transferred to the local hospital for medical treatment.

In a similar accident in the Kapisa province of Afghanistan, six persons were killed, and nine others were injured. 

The country’s traffic accidents have increased due to reckless driving, poorly built roads, a lack of the rule of law, and poorly maintained automobiles.

According to the World Health Organization, 6,033 fatalities from traffic accidents are expected to occur in Afghanistan in 2020, or 2.6% of all fatalities. As a result, the nation is ranked 76 globally regarding accidents.
