NEW YORK: Aliza Akhtar, daughter of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) member Naveed Akhtar Waraich, died on Saturday after a head-on car collision in the United States.

A suspected drunk-driver, identified as Aliaksandr Tsytsenia, drove into Akhtar's vehicle after crossing over into the opposite lane. The accident took place in the Old Bridge area, a township in New Jersey.

Police arrested the 28-year-old Tsytsenia, who faces charges of vehicular homicide, leaving the scene of an accident, assault by car, and driving while intoxicated. Akhtar's 15-year-old sister was also traveling with her and was treated for injuries in a hospital.
