An Afghan official says a truck crash in northwestern Afghanistan has killed 32 people.

Ahmadullah Alizai, the provincial governor of Badghis province, said Sunday that the incident happened in the Ab Kamari district of the province on Saturday.

He said the truck was loaded with people and animals and was traveling through a mountainous rural area when it crashed.

Such incidents are common in Afghanistan, where the roads are not well-maintained and safe driving practices are not always followed.
