HERAT, Afghanistan, Jan. 27 (Xinhua) -- Nine people were killed and two others injured in a wagon-bus collision in Afghanistan's western Herat province on Wednesday, a local government spokesman said.

The accident happened when a wagon hit head-on into a long-distance bus coming from the opposite direction along a provincial highway in Herat's Adraskan district at mid-day, spokesman Jilani Farhad told Xinhua.

Those killed, including three women and a child, were passengers aboard the wagon, the official said.

Road mishaps are frequent in the mountainous country and occur mostly due to poor driving or badly maintained roads and vehicles.
