Road accidents are common on Egypt's poorly maintained roads

Four people were killed and three were injured in a traffic accident in Cairo's Maadi district on Friday.

Ambulances are at the scene and police are investigating the incident.

Hundreds die and thousands are injured every year in car crashes in Egypt, notorious for its poor road safety record and loosely enforced traffic regulations.

A recent government report said that 100,000 car accidents took place in Egypt from 2008 to 2012, with 33,000 killed and another 150,000 injured.
