A road crash between a microbus and a pickup truck in Egypt's Helwan governorate has left 11 dead and five injured.

The accident took place when the microbus driver tried to dodge a car coming from the opposite direction, only to find himself slamming into a pickup truck. Reports indicate that the accident took place due to lack of clear barriers on the two-way road.

The injured were taken to the El Saff El Markazy Hospital and the bodies of the dead were taken to the morgue of Atfeef Hospital.

The dead include the driver of the microbus, three women and a 4-year-old boy.
