Thirteen people, including nine women and three children, died after a minibus plunged into a ravine in a valley in the central province of Isfahan. Nine people were injured and were taken to hospital. They were reported to be in serious condition, according to IRNA.
The second accident, which killed seven, involved a crash between a bus and a car in the southeastern Sistan-Baluchestan Province. A huge fire engulfed the two vehicles after the collision.
First Vice President Es'haq Jahangiri offered condolences to the families of the victims and called for immediate investigation into the causes of the incidents.
With about 17,000 dying every year in accidents, Iran has one of the world's worst traffic safety records.
