A team has been formed under District Emergency Officer Rana Ejaz Ahmed to pull out the passengers stuck under the vehicles.

Ahmed said that the accident took place because of smog. "The bus collided with a Toyota Hiace van due to less visibility on the road."

Following the collision, the LPG cylinder in the van exploded setting both the vehicles ablaze, the officer added.

The bus was travelling from Narowal to Lahore.
