At least six commuters were killed, and two others injured in a road accident in north Afghanistan’s Badakhshan province on Thursday, provincial police spokesman Mohammad Kamgar said on Friday.

The accident occurred in Yawaran district on Thursday afternoon when a car overturned, killing six people, including women and children, on the spot and injuring two others, some in critical condition, Kamgar said.

This is the third road accident in the country since Thursday morning. Earlier, two road accidents claimed the life of a traveler and injured four others in the eastern Nangarhar province on Thursday afternoon.

Ramshackle roads, reckless driving on congested roads and lack of safety measures during travel are mostly blamed for deadly road accidents in mountainous and war-ravaged Afghanistan.
