Baku, March 10, AZERTAC

Eighteen people died Wednesday night when a truck and a microbus collided in South Sinai’s Abu-Redees- Tur highway, Egypt's interior ministry said in a Facebook statement, according to Ahram Online.

Twelve of the 18 victims were police conscripts who were assigned to the Dahab police station, four were students and two of the victims remain unidentified.

Daily accidents claim the lives of thousands of people every year in Egypt, mainly due to poor road safety and loosely enforced traffic regulations.
