Residents of Rahim village, located between Cairo and Fayoum, blocked the road today after a car accident killed two and injured 15. It took security forces two hours to restore calm to the scene.
Inspections revealed a speeding truck hit the concrete barrier that divides the road in front of a nearby primary school. Shortly thereafter, a vehicle hit workers on board another truck that had come to the assistance of those involved in the initial accident.
Two bodies were transferred to the morgue, while those injured were taken to Fayoum Public Hospital.
