Two people were killed and 14 injured after a bus collided with a truck on GT Road in Jhelum on Tuesday morning.

The bus overturned because of the impact of the collision. The bodies and injured have been moved to the District Headquarter Hospital.

Ever since winters arrived in the country, accidents because of smog have been recurring in Punjab.
On November 30, 13 people, including women and children, were killed after a fire broke out in a passenger van following a collision with another vehicle on the Narowal Road near Sheikhupura’s Narang Mandi
Emergency Officer Rana Ejaz 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.”
Last year, Lahore was ranked the second most polluted city in the world when its AQI ranking shot to 328. Smog is formed by a mixture of pollutants and water vapor in the atmosphere.
