Tractor accident kills 5 in Nepal



A tractor veered off a highway in Nepal’s Achham district on Monday morning, leaving five people dead and three others injured.

“Five people including the driver died on the spot,’’ Arjun Saud, spokesperson of the district police, told our correspondent.

He said that all the victims were from the same village and that one of the injured was in serious condition.

Unreliable public transportation often makes people travel on tractors in rural Nepal.

Hundreds of people lost their lives in traffic accidents in the Himalayan country annually.
