Ahram Online , Tuesday 8 Sep 2015

A mother and daughter were killed and five others were injured in a collision in Egypt's Beheira governorate on Tuesday, Al-Ahram Arabic news website reported.

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

According to initial investigations, the incident took place on the desert road after the shared taxi, carrying the mother and daughter, collided with a car being driven by a 20-year-old student.

Those killed and injured were passengers in the first car.

Beheira witnesses many road accidents, including one in August where four individuals from the same family were killed and one child was injured in a car crash.

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.
