Three people were killed in a road crash in Egypt's south on Friday, the latest in near deadly traffic accidents plaguing the country.

The crash, involving three vehicles, occurred in the governorate of Minya because of high-speed driving, state news agency MENA said.

Egypt is notorious for its poor road safety record where roadways are poorly maintained and traffic regulations are loosely enforced.

Earlier this month, 18 people were killed when a bus packed with high school students collided with three other vehicles in Lower Egypt, prompting the government to introduce amendments to a traffic law that set harsher punishments for traffic violations. 

Days earlier, at least ten female university students were killed in a collision in Sohag, Upper Egypt.
