Two feared dead as car falls into river

Two feared dead as car falls into river

Jan 14, 2011 - 16:06

FAIZABAD (PAN): A man and a woman are feared dead and a third person was wounded as the car they were travelling in plunged into a river in northeastern Badakhshan province, an official said on Friday.

The three were travelling from Kabul to Badakhshan. Their car slipped 500 metres down off the mountain road into the river in the Qura Kamar area of Argo district Thursday night, the provincial traffic department head said.

Col. Muhammad Ibrahim told Pajhwok Afghan News that bodies of the driver and his sister were yet to be fished out. The 15-year-old boy, who survived the incident, was shifted to the Badakhshan Civil Hospital in critical condition, Ibrahim said.

He linked the accident, the third such mishap in the neighbourhood in less than a week, to rash driving. Three days back, a driver and his companion were killed in an accident in the same area.
