All casualties and those injured were transported to the Wadi Al-Natroun Hospital.

According to initial investigations, the incident took place when the back tire of the car exploded, causing the car to careen across the road and collide with a truck.

All those killed and injured were passengers in the car.

Beheira witnesses many road accidents. Earlier in August, two microbuses collided on the Damanhour-Hosh Eissa Road in Beheira governorate, injuring 18.

Traffic accidents in Egypt claim around 12,000 lives a year, according to the World Heath Organization.

Crashes are often blamed on bad driving, poor infrastructure, and loosely enforced traffic regulations.
