More deadly road accidents in the northern Delta governorate

Five people were killed and other three were injured in a road crash in Egypt's Delta governorate of Behiera on Wednesday.

The deadly crash, which occurred in the city of Itay Al Barrod, took place as a truck and three cars slammed into each other on a high way.

Late last month, four people died and 10 people were injured on the same day as a result of three different road accidents in Beheira.

Egypt is notorious for its poor road safety record where roadways are poorly maintained and traffic regulations are loosely enforced.

In December 2015, the country's census authority said that over 2,800 people were killed in road and train crashes in Egypt in the first half of 2015.
