A bus going to Karachi has crashed into a tractor trolley in Pakistan, with at least 42 people killed and 17 wounded, according to police. Women and children were among the dead.

The bus was carrying over 50 passengers when it lost control, collided with the other vehicle and was completely destroyed, rescue workers said, as quoted by India’s largest independent news service.

Police and rescuers immediately rushed to the scene and started cutting through the wreckage of the bus to rescue passengers.

The bus driver died on the spot, while the tractor trolley’s driver was injured.

The accident happened in the town of Sukkur, 425 kilometers north of Karachi in the southern province of Sindh.

Most of the buses in Pakistan are overloaded . Spend less on killing machines and more on infrastructure .

Nearly 50 people died and she's calling for billions more to die. Must be an Americunt.
