ISLAMABAD: Seven people have been killed in two separate road accidents late night and in the early morning hours.

The toll of sorrow continued on the national highway, where a more devastating collision involving two buses, a trolley, and a truck loaded with wheat resulted in the loss of five lives and left ten others severely injured in Bahawalpur.
The gravity of the situation escalated when the wheat-laden truck caught fire upon impact, leading to the horrifying demise of five individuals, while ten others sustained severe injuries in the blaze.
According to reports from the rescue teams on the scene, the calamity unfolded as one of the buses attempted to evade a collision with a qingchi rickshaw.
