In Logar traffic accident, 3 people killed

At least three people were killed in a traffic accident in eastern Logar province of Afghanistan, a local official said on Sunday.

The accident took place in the Tangi-e-Waghjan area in Mohammad Agha district of the province on Sunday afternoon.

Traffic accidents are common in Afghanistan’s highways where roads are often in a poor state.

Shahpoor Ahmadzai, a spokesman for Logar police told Ariana News that the tragedy occurred after two vehicles collided in the area, leaving at least three killed and seven more wounded.

Ahmadzai added that wounded people including women and children were hospitalized.

Immediately it was not clear what exactly caused the accident. Most of the traffic accidents, however, are basically because of reckless and high-speed driving, lack of traffic signals, and bad condition of the roads.
