ISLAMABAD (AP) — Pakistani police say a car carrying a family has fallen off a mountainous road into a deep gorge killing five and wounding one in the country's northwest.

Police officer Qasim Jadoon said Sunday that three young girls were among the dead along with their father and grandfather. He said driver of the car was being treated for critical injuries.

Jadoon said the incident took place some 160 kilometers (100 miles) north of the garrison city of Abbottabad. Villagers and rescue workers retrieved the bodies after an hours-long effort.

Such accidents often take place in Pakistan because of poor road conditions and disregard for safety standards and traffic rules by motorists.
