Shafaqna India: At least 18 people died and 19 were injured early Wednesday when a bus collided with a milk tanker in Uttar Pradesh, northern India, according to police reports. Zulfiqaar Ali from the district police chief’s office confirmed that the bus, traveling from Bihar to New Delhi, rammed into the tanker from behind, resulting in the fatalities and injuries.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath described the incident as “heart-wrenching.”

Road accidents are a frequent occurrence in India, with government statistics indicating 168,000 fatalities in 2022 alone. In a similar incident in May, at least 21 people were killed and over 50 injured when a bus plunged into a deep gorge in Indian-administered Kashmir.
