Tehran, Iran, Sep. 30 – At least 14 people died when a fuel tanker slammed into a bus on a highway stretch in south-eastern Iran, state media reported on Saturday.

Both vehicles were set on fire in the collision which occurred late Friday in Sistan-va-Baluchistan Province, the state-run news agency ISNA said.

The report added that 15 people were injured in the crash.

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.
