Egypt witnessed a 9.3 percent drop in injuries in road accidents in 2021 compared to 2020 as the government continues an ambitious mega plan to modernise roads and highways nationwide.
However, news of recent major accidents drew headlines for their relatively large death toll.
The latest accident took place on Tuesday when 17 people were killed and 4 injured after a passenger microbus collided with a truck in Upper Egypt’s Sohag governorate.
