Tehran, Iran, Aug. 25 – At least seven people were killed and six others injured when a bus carrying passengers in the northern province of Semnan collided with a lorry, state-run press reported on Thursday.

The accident occurred on the highway from Sabzevar to Shahroud.

The head of Iran’s traffic police Brigadier General Mohammad Rouyanian announced in June that the expected death toll from accidents on Iran’s highways for the current year stood at 31,000.

Iran’s highways are considered to be among the most dangerous in the world, with some 100,000 road-accident deaths occurring in the last five years, the equivalent of three deaths an hour.
