A devastating highway collision in Egypt‘s Beheira governorate has left at least 32 people dead, with more than 60 others injured, as reported by Egypt’s health ministry.

The tragic incident occurred in thick morning fog when a passenger bus en route to Cairo collided with a parked vehicle on the highway connecting Cairo and Alexandria.

Subsequent collisions, some leading to fires, involved multiple vehicles. The crash site, approximately 100 miles north of Cairo, saw charred wreckage strewn across the road, with images shared on social media revealing the extent of the devastation.

Emergency services swiftly responded to transport the injured to hospitals. Police sources attributed the accident to an oil leak from one vehicle, which triggered the subsequent collisions and fires, affecting 29 vehicles in total.

Regrettably, at least 18 individuals suffered burn injuries in this tragic accident. The Egyptian Meteorological Authority had issued warnings of heavy fog on the highways the previous day.

This incident serves as a grim reminder of the frequent fatal road accidents in Egypt, with official statistics indicating that 7,000 lives were lost in road accidents in 2021.

These incidents are often attributed to reckless driving and subpar road conditions, despite ongoing efforts to enhance Egypt’s road infrastructure in recent years.
