MAHMUD-E-RAQI, Afghanistan, Sept. 9 (Xinhua) -- One commuter was killed with 14 others injured in a road accident in east Afghanistan's Kapisa province on Friday evening, the provincial police said in a statement on Saturday.

Police said that two cars collided on a road in Tagab district, leaving one dead on the spot and 14 others injured, including eight women, with some in critical condition.

A day earlier, two commuters were killed and 10 others injured in a similar road accident in the neighboring Laghman province.

Dilapidated roads, lack of safety measures during travel, using old vehicles and reckless driving are often blamed for road accidents in Afghanistan.
