15 killed, 7 injured in multiple-vehicle crash along major Egyptian highway

 AT least 15 people have been killed and seven others injured in a multiple-vehicle collision in the El Amaraya area of Egypt’s Cairo-Alexandria desert road, the Egyptian state news agency said.

Security forces and ambulances immediately rushed to the scene of the accident. The injured were transported to the hospital for treatment, MENA quoted local authorities as saying.

Traffic officers are working to restore traffic flow, and the cause of the accident is pending further investigation.

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.
