High fatality crashes are common in Pakistan, often caused by driver error and poorly-maintained roads.

Balochistan Chief Minister Sindh Murad Ali Shah told reporters that two children were among the injured, and that at least five people had sustained serious head injuries.

He added that the details of the accident were still under investigation.
