3 dead, 7 hurt in road accident


At least three people were killed and seven others sustained injures when a pickup over turned due to over loading in Bannu district, police and rescue officials said.
The officials said the pickup moving towards Dhomail from Peshawar over turned when its tie rod broke due to over loading. They said three people died at the spot while seven others injured.
“The injured bodies have been shifted to District Head Quarter (DHQ) hospital,” they said.
Pakistan’s roads are highly dangerous as the traffic laws and safety are widely flouted, and uneducated drivers typically don’t have knowledge about the traffic rules, they further commented.
