Death toll has reached 10 and 10 were injured in a road accident on Sunday in Egypt's Fayoum governorate, 130 km southwest of Cairo, Al-Ahram's Arabic news website reported. 

The accident happened when six cars and a motorcycle collided in front of Fayoum Spinning Factory on the Fayoum-Beni Suef Road.

Traffic accidents are a top cause of death in Egypt.

From 2008 to 2012, over 30,000 people were killed and another 150,000 injured in car accidents that numbered 100,000, according to a report released earlier this month by the ministries of interior and transportation.
