Khartoum, Jan 14 (IANS) At least 14 people were killed on Sunday in a traffic accident in western Sudan, an official of Sudanese North Darfur State said.

The accident took place on the Western Salvation road in Um Kadada on the border between North Darfur and West Kordofan State, Mohamed Osman, commissioner of Um Kadada, said in a statement.

Osman added that an unknown number of the injured people were transferred to a hospital near the accident site to receive treatment, Xinhua reported.

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.
