At least 12 people were killed and 11 others injured on Wednesday evening in a road accident in the Khairpur district of Pakistan’s southern Sindh province, an official said.

Deputy Commissioner of the district Ahmed Fawad Shah told the media that a passenger van and a car collided with each other near the Babarloi Bypass area of Khairpur, leaving seven people dead on the spot and 16 others injured.

Police and rescue teams rushed to the site and shifted the bodies and injured to a nearby hospital.

The official added that five of the injured succumbed to their injuries during their treatment at the hospital, increasing the death toll to 12.

The official feared that the death toll might rise further because some of the wounded were still in critical condition.

According to the official, the passenger van was heading towards Khairpur from Sukkur when it had a head-on collision with the car coming from the opposite side.
