He explained that the accident occurred when a passenger bus coming from the Sudanese capital Khartoum collided with a broken truck parked on the roadside.

 

Sudan is among countries with the highest death rates in traffic accidents, mainly due to careless driving, crumbling roads and poor vehicle scrapping system.

Sudan's Interior Ministry recently said that it was working on new plans to reduce traffic accidents, including installation of radars to monitor speed on highways.
