A passenger bus traveling from Turbat to Quetta in Balochistan’s Washuk district fell into a ravine early Wednesday, resulting in the deaths of at least 28 people and injuries to 22 others, including women and children, according to Dawn. The incident occurred when a tyre burst, causing the bus to crash into a hill and then plunge into a ravine.

Assistant Commissioner of Basima, Ismail Mengal, reported that the accident happened around 5 am. The bus had 45 to 50 passengers on board. Six passengers died instantly, while others succumbed to their injuries at Basima Civil Hospital. Nine critically injured passengers were transferred to Combined Military Hospital in Khuzdar, and four were airlifted to Quetta for further treatment.

The remote location and poor mobile network coverage delayed rescue operations, but assistance was dispatched as soon as possible. Most of the deceased have not been identified, and efforts are being made to contact Gwadar administration for identification purposes.

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Balochistan Chief Minister Mir Sarfraz Bugti expressed deep sorrow over the incident. They extended their condolences to the bereaved families and directed officials to provide the best medical care to the injured. National Party President Abdul Malik Baloch also expressed his sorrow, highlighting the need for constructing two-way roads in Balochistan to prevent such tragedies.
