At least six people were killed and three others injured after a car fell into a ravine in Pakistan's Upper Kohistan district on Wednesday, local media reported.

According to the reports, a car carrying nine members of a family fell into the ravine in Lotar area of Upper Kohistan, a district in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province, reports Xinhua news agency.

Local residents, police and rescue teams rushed to the site and shifted the bodies and the injured to a nearby hospital.
