Many cars collided on a desert road before entering the village of Al-Shujaa. The first collision happened between a passenger bus and several cars. As a result of the collision, oil leaked, which led to a collision of more vehicles.
Twenty ambulances were dispatched to the place of the accident and transported the injured people to the Wadi al-Natrun Surgical Hospital and Nubaria Central Hospital. Medical sources reported that burned bodies were removed from the cars. Most of the victims could not be identified.
The accident brought traffic to a standstill on the Cairo - Alexandria highway. A criminal case was opened over the tragedy.
As a reminder, 158 cars and trucks collided on the road in the US state of Louisiana due to fog mixed with smoke from the fires. Most of the cars burned to the ground, at least seven people were killed and more than 25 injured.
