A bus transporting Egyptians and tourists flipped over on Friday, 38 kilometres from a large Red Sea touristy beach town, Hurghada. A young girl died in the accident and thirty-six were injured.
The injured were transferred to various hospitals, including Hurghada's public hospital and two private hospitals: The Nile and El Gouna's.
Four foreigners - three German tourists and a Ukranian - were transferred to the military hospital upon the request of Hurghada's governor, Mahmoud Essam.
According to a report published in July 2011 by the Central Authority for Public Transport, road and rail accidents claimed over 7,000 lives in Egypt in 2010 - a rise of 7.9 per cent over the year before.
