CAIRO: At least seven people were injured in separate road traffic accidents Sunday morning, Youm7 reported.

In Fayoum, a city located southwest of Cairo, a crash occurred between a microbus and a truck on Ebshoy Road, leaving five wounded.

The injured were taken to Fayoum General Hospital, and investigations into the accident kicked off.

While in Upper Egypt, a motorbike reportedly hit a 55-year-old Farag Hussein on the Sohag-Gerga Agricultural Road.

Hussein was taken to a private hospital after suffering bruises and a wound in his left leg.

Eight children were killed in two separate road accidents on Feb.13.

Egypt records a high mortality rate on the road due to road crashes, which experts attribute to the lack of safety measures and maintenance. However, officials indicate “human error” as the main reason behind the reported accidents.

In the past two years, the country has been escalating measures to monitor road safety and raise its efficiency, through applying random drug-tests to drivers, checking car and driver’s licenses, building new roads and renewing old ones as part of a national road project.

Bridges also top the ministry’s agenda of reform, where maintenance of hundreds of bridges was recently announced to be taking place.
