7 killed, 25 injured in traffic accident in S. Egypt


 Seven people were killed and 25 others injured on Tuesday when a bus overturned on the eastern desert road in southern Egypt’s Minya governorate.

Initial investigations suggested that the bus overturned after colliding with a sidewalk due to poor visibility caused by dense morning fog, the state-run Ahram Online news website reported.

Right after the accident, ambulances and security forces rushed to the scene and evacuated the injured to nearby hospitals.

The prosecution has started an investigation into the incident.

Road accidents claim thousands of lives every year in Egypt as a result of speeding, poor maintenance of roads and lax enforcement of traffic laws.
