In another case, like the Pakistan bus tanker accident, a bus overturned near Rohri that took the lives of 8 people. 38 people were injured including the driver. The accident happened because the driver was unable to control the bus at a sharp turn. The accident happened on National Highway. The bus was coming from Karachi and was meant to reach Swat. The dead include 4 women and 2 children according to the Rescue 1122 officials. The dead were shifted to Rohri Taluka Hospital while the injured were later shifted to civil and district hospitals.
Such cases of accidents are becoming common in Pakistan where negligence on the part of the driver claims the life of many people and leaves grieving families a loss of a lifetime. Along with this poor infrastructure and broken roads are also one of the major causes of such accidents. The related authorities need to take proper investigation to figure out who was responsible for the Pakistan bus tanker accident.
Proper actions need to be taken by the authorities to curb such cases of negligence by drivers. The bus companies also need to investigate such cases to find out the causes and then derive better policies for the sake of people’s lives and its security. Only then such cases like the Pakistan bus tanker accident can be avoided or at least lessened.
