Ten killed, 14 wounded in a road accident in Egypt

A bus carrying workers collided with a truck in northern Egypt on Thursday, killing 10 and injuring 14 people, a police officer said.

The accident happened when a truck and trailer pulled on to the Cairo-Alexandria highway from a side road, hitting the bus that was carrying workers of a petrochemical company, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity as he was not authorized to speak to the press.

Seven of the 14 injured were admitted to hospital in a serious condition, the official added.

The crash occurred 57 kilometers (35 miles) northwest of Cairo.

Road accidents are common in Egypt owing to its bad roads and poor enforcement of traffic laws. Police estimate road accidents kill about 6,000 people annually, reports the AP.
