Horrific images show the crumpled wreck of the bus after it plunged from the bridge on Wednesday.

According to reports Pakistani officials have said 22 more were left hurt after the crash.

The tragic accident happened in Washuk, western Pakistan this morning.

Emergency services raced to the scene and rushed the injured to a hospital nearby.

Around 22 of those people later succumbed to their injures.

Some who are in critical condition had to be taken to a different hospital in the large city of Quetta.

Footage from the scene shows the upturned bus lying in the ravine.

People crowd around the wreckage as they help with emergency rescue efforts.

A crane was dispatched to the scene to help manage the wreck.

The bus was taking people from Gwadar to Quetta.

Prime minister Shehbaz Sharif shared his condolences with the families of those who died.

He said: “We stand with the mourning families in this difficult time and express our heartfelt sympathy.”

Earlier on in May another passenger bus crashed in Pakistan leaving at least 20 dead and 21 more wounded.

In eerily similar circumstances, it also careened off a road and plummeted down into a rocky ravine.

A huge government rescue mission was launched with army helicopters flown in to help.
