KANDAHAR CITY (Pajhwok): Two people were killed and four others wounded on Monday when the car they were riding in veered off a road in southern Kandahar province, an official said.

The accident took place on the Kabulinfo-icon-Kandahar highway in Marwandi Manda area of Daman district at around 3pm.

Kandahar traffic department director, Col. Mohammadullah Khan, told Pajhwok Afghan News the dead included the driver and all the victims belonged to the same family.

He blamed the accident on high speed and negligence of the driver. The injured had been evacuated to the Mirwais Hospital for treatment, Khan added.

A doctor at the Mairwais Hospital, who wished to go unnamed, said that condition of two of the injured was critical.

Officials say most of the accidents on the Kabul-Kandahar highway result from drivers’ negligence, violation of traffic rules and bad condition of the road.
