At least 32 people were killed and dozens were injured in two separate road accidents in Turkiye on Saturday, each in places where collisions took place earlier in the day, local media reported.

A first crash involving a bus and an ambulance killed 16 people and injured 21 more on a motorway in Gaziantep province, while at least 16 people were killed and nearly 30 injured after a truck driver hur-tled into pedestrians in Derik in Mardin province.

Governor Davut Gul said earlier the first accident involved “a bus, an emergency team and an ambu-lance” on the route between provincial capital Ga-ziantep and Nizip.—Agencies
