LAYYAH- At least 22 people were injured in a collision between a passenger bus and a train engine at Karor Lal Esan railway-crossing here on Saturday. The incident took place when a bus collided with a train engine while crossing the railway-track through the unmanned level-crossing. The injured were shifted to the Tehsil Hospital Lal Esan for medical assistance; however, the injured people have faced difficulties in treatment due to the unavailability of medical staff.
