QUETTA: A collision between a truck and a passenger bus on Tuesday claimed eight lives on the National Highway near Balochistan's Mach Tehsil, about 75 kilometres east of Quetta, DawnNews reported.

Two women were among the dead and 13 people were injured in the accident. The injured were being shifted to hospitals in Quetta.

According to initial reports, the accident occurred when brake failure caused the driver of the Quetta-bound bus to lose control of the vehicle after departing from Sukkur.

Levies forces took custody of both the vehicles as investigations into the crash went underway.
