ISLAMABAD, June 11 (Xinhua) -- Six people were killed after a gas tanker collided with a car in Pakistan's east Punjab province on Monday, the motorway police said.

The accident happened near Chakwal district where both vehicles fell into the ravine after the collision, the police said in a statement.

Fire erupted in the tanker and was timely doused.

Police said that the accident was caused by the failure of the tanker's brakes.

"The vehicle's brake failure caused it to crash into the median wall on the road and then collide with the oncoming car," the statement added.
