Three people, including two religious scholars, have died and seven others have been injured as a result of a traffic accident on the Jawzjan-Balkh highway in northern Afghanistan.

According to the Taliban-controlled media, Bakhtar news agency, the traffic accident took place on the Jawzjan-Balkh highway on Saturday night, October 15.

Two religious scholars were among the dead, according to Bismillah Nusrat, the Taliban Director of Information and Culture for Jawzjan province in northern Afghanistan, according to Bakhtar.

Although the Taliban authorities provided no additional information regarding the specific details and cause of the traffic mishap, they did state that many of those killed were school and university students.

The number of traffic accidents nationwide has significantly increased recently.

  Previously, three people were killed and three others were injured when a car deviated on the Herat-Badghis highway in western Afghanistan and overturned, according to local Herat province sources.

According to the sources familiar with the accident, the traffic incident happened on Tuesday, October 11, as the car was traveling from Herat province to Qala-e-Naw, the provincial capital of Badghis.

The main causes of traffic accidents in the country, which significantly contribute to the number of traffic-related deaths in Afghanistan, are deteriorated roads, reckless driving, and a disregard for traffic laws.
