ISLAMABAD, July 19 (Xinhua) -- At least 27 people were killed and over 30 others injured when a passenger bus collided with a trailer in Pakistan's eastern Punjab province, local media reported Monday morning.

According to the reports, the accident occurred after the over-speeding bus collided with a trailer near Taunsa bypass in Dera Ghazi Khan district of Punjab.

Rescue teams rushed to the site and shifted the victims to the near hospital.
