According to the latest news, at least 26 people were killed in the drastic collision between a passenger bus carrying 37 passengers and an oil tanker, in Hub Baluchistan.
Travelling passenger bus carrying 37 passengers was going from Karachi to Panjgar District when it crashed into an oil tanker. This collision resulted in the bursting of flames, and the oil tanker and the bus were engulfed in that fire.
Many people jumped out of the bus in order to save their lives. It is reported that at least 16 people jumped out of the burning bus to save their lives and many succeed as well.
But according to the latest update, 26 people lost their lives due to burning. They could not get out in time and burned to death.
The seriously injured people are admitted to the local Hub district hospital while 6 people who are in very critical conditions are sent to the Karachi hospital.
The bodies of the deceased will be handed over to their relatives after their DNA test will be done, and they will be transported to the Sohrab Goth Edhi’s Mosque where they will be sent for DNA tests.
Many rescue officials including law enforcement agencies rushed to the incident site and carried out the rescue operation.
It was a very difficult task as the fire was out of control and intensity of the fire was way too much to continue the rescue operation, but it was done.
Every year, many lives are lost due to reckless driving and extreme weather conditions. But no precautions have been taken as such. It feels as if the loss of human lives doesn’t matter this much to our officials.
Serious precautions must be taken regarding the drivers of the passenger buses and allowing of the transportation to continue in foggy weather.
