Seven people were killed and 13 others injured in a car accident in Egypt, official news agency MENA reported Friday.

The accident took place when a truck collided with a microbus on Marsa Alam-Eddfo road, about 400 km from the Egyptian capital Cairo, the report added.

Eight ambulances rushed to the scene and transferred the wounded to Marsa Alam Hospital, according to the report, adding that the traffic authority managed to restore the traffic flow on the road.

Egypt's newly-appointed Transportation Minister Hatem Abdel- Latif recently said that road accidents in Egypt kill about 10,000 every year and the government is working to improve the road services across the country.

The lack of highway security monitoring system, poor road maintenance and the ignorance of traffic rules are behind the high rate of road accidents in Egypt.
