Two people were killed and four others were hurt when a fast-moving vehicle swerved on the Herat-Badghis highway in western Afghanistan, according to the local Taliban officials.
According to the office of the Taliban chief of police in Herat province, the traffic mishap took place on the Herat-Badghis highway in Herat province’s Karkh district, on Friday, August 26.
A newsletter published by the office of the chief of police stated that a car deviated from the road between Herat and Qala-e-Naw, the provincial capital of Badghis province, resulting in 2 fatalities and 4 injuries.
Earlier this week, a traffic collision between two laden trucks in the Almar district of the northern Afghan province of Faryab resulted in the fatalities of three people.
Local sources said that three individuals died in the crash, which included two heavily loaded Mazda trucks on the Maimana-Almar route.
An increased frequency of deadly traffic incidents in Afghanistan has recently been linked in large part to driver negligence.
Speeding, hazardous roads, disobedient drivers, and a lack of traffic signals are additional significant elements that contribute to Afghanistan’s daily traffic fatalities.—Tolonews
