Six killed as two buses collide in Turkey

At least six people were killed and 20 others were injured as two buses collided in Turkey's eastern Iğdır province on Monday.

The buses collided on the highway linking Iğdır's Aralık district with the Dilucu border gate, with Iranian and Azerbaijani nationals possibly among the casualties.

Iğdır Governor Ahmet Turgay Alpman, who headed to the crash scene, said that the accident occurred due to the two vehicles crashing as they passed each other amid thick fog.

Numerous ambulances and rescue teams have been dispatched to the crash scene, and efforts are resuming to rescue those passengers who remain trapped inside the buses, the Daily Sabah reported.
