Senior police official Zulifiqar Cheema says 35 passengers were injured in the accident near the city of Sheikhura early Saturday. He says the apparent cause was driver negligence, as the bus was speeding.
Cheema says the bus was traveling from Lahore to Faisalabad, an industrial city which lies in the eastern Punjab province.
Road accidents are common in Pakistan because of poor infrastructure and routine disregard of traffic laws.
On March 16, a bus carrying Pakistani soldiers fell into a ravine in the northwest, killing 24.
