Moreover, a cargo truck collided head-on with an oil tanker on Wali Khan by-pass in Mastung district, killing two men on the truck and injuring four others.

Road accidents are a common occurrence in Balochistan due to outdated roads. The national highways have not been upgraded for decades and the inadequate dual carriageways have also proved fatal for the increasing traffic.
 
A few days ago, Senator JahanZaib Jamaldini, in a meeting, discussed the surge in road accidents in Balochistan with the chairman of National Highway Authority, where he had put forward the issue of road mishaps, which cause hundreds of deaths annually on the roads across Balochistan.
