Minibus crash in Iran
At least 14 people have been killed when a minibus plunged into a ravine in Iran's western Kurdistan province. Eight others were injured in the incident. The crash happened on Thursday, local time, Iran's state news agency IRNA quoted AFP as saying.

According to Iranian reports, the bus was passing through the Marivan and Kamiyaran areas of the mountainous region of Kurdistan. It was an accident due to the driver's mistake. The condition of one of the injured is critical.

Meanwhile, the news agency ISNA has mentioned that the number of casualties is more. According to their report, 16 people were killed and 12 injured in the accident on Thursday.

The injured were taken to a hospital in the city of Sanandaj, state news agency Arab News reported, quoting Iranian state television. A rescue helicopter, an ambulance bus, and six ambulances have been deployed to rescue the victims.

Iran's road communication system is quite good. Even then, Iran is one of the most accident-prone countries in the world. About 17,000 people die in road accidents in the country every year. The reason for this is that the country has weak policies for drivers and expired vehicles.
