UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Six people, including foreigners, were killed on Saturday in the collision of two tourist buses and a transport truck on the Ain Sukhna Road in Suez Governorate in Egypt, according to a security official and medical source.
“The director of Suez Security has received a notification from the Road Safety Administration stating the collision of two buses (two minibuses) and a transport vehicle next to a popular tourist resort (… on) Ain Sukhna – Al Zafarana Road,” the security official told AFP.
The accident resulted in the death of six people and the injury of at least 24, the sources said.
“It turned out that among the victims were Indian and Chinese foreigners,” the official added.
In turn, a medical source inside Suez General Hospital, where the dead were taken, said that “some of the injured are in critical conditions.”
Egypt is witnessing the continuation of traffic accidents due to the poor condition of many roads and the recklessness of drivers, which prompted the government during the past years to pay attention to the national road network, the construction of new roads and the repair of shabby.
According to the statistics of the Central Agency for Mobilization and Statistics in Egypt, road vehicle accidents decreased during 2018 to 8,480 accidents, compared to 11,098 accidents in the previous year, a decrease of 23.6%.
The death toll from traffic accidents last year in Egypt reached 3087 people, according to official figures.
