At least 19 people, including women and children, are dead after a passenger bus and truck collided in Pakistan.

Officials say the accident occurred on April 13 in Pakistan's eastern Punjab Province.

Several people were also injured in the crash near the city of Faisalabad.

A rescue official said the bus was apparently speeding at the time but officers were still investigating to determine the cause of the crash.

TV footage showed images of the badly destroyed bus.

Deadly accidents are common in Pakistan due to bad road infrastructure and a disregard of traffic laws.
