A traveler has been confirmed dead and five others were injured as a mini-bus overturned in Afghanistan’s central Bamyan province on Tuesday, said a statement of provincial police headquarters Wednesday.

The accident took place on the highway in Shabar district on Tuesday evening when a mini-bus turned turtle due to reckless driving, killing one on the spot and injuring five others, the statement said.

All the injured including women and children have been taken to a hospital for medical treatment.

This was the second road accident in Afghanistan since Tuesday morning. In the previous accident, which occurred in the eastern Laghman province on Tuesday afternoon, five people were injured.

Ramshackle roads, old vehicles, lack of safety measures during travel and reckless driving on congested highways are main reasons for road accidents in the mountainous country, as nearly 400 people have reportedly been killed in road mishaps over the past three months.
