The accident occurred on the Ring Road near the Basateen District, bringing the traffic to a standstill.

The crash occurred when a pick-up truck overturned after the driver lost control of the steering wheel.

This caused another truck to collide with a trailer, leading to a chain of collisions.

First responders arrived on the scene and transferred the victims to hospitals.

The Public Prosecution has initiated an investigation into the accident.

The Ring Road links the main highways in the governorates of Greater Cairo, which include Cairo, Giza, and Qalyoubia.

The road is being expanded from four to seven lanes in each direction.

It will also be expanded to eight lanes in each direction on the El-Monib and El-Warraq bridges.
