Second deadly crash on Monday, after four died in Sohag governorate earlier

A microbus overturned in Egypt's Minya governorate on Monday, killing four and injuring 14, Al-Ahram's Arabic website reported.

The dead included an 11-month old infant as well as his 32-year old mother.

The microbus was heading from Cairo to Upper Egypt's Sohag governorate when it overturned on Minya's Western Desert Road.

This is the second fatal car accident in Egypt in the same day. Earlier on Monday, four people were killed and two injured when a private car and a pickup truck crashed in Sohag governorate.

On Saturday, 14 were killed in another car crash in Minya governorate.

Egypt loses around 12,000 lives to road accidents every year, according to a report by the World Health Organisation (WHO).
