Seven people have lost their lives in a terrible traffic accident that took place at a traffic intersection at Badrasheen Center, south of Giza, Egypt.


The blood-splattered crash site presented a gory sight. Eleven others sustained injuries.


Surveillance cameras showed a small van travelling at high speed, carrying a group of children on their way to the Azhari Institute in Badrasheen, colliding with a Suzuki car at the crossing.


A garbage truck was next to the Suzuki car, which found itself sandwiched between the high-speed minibus and the truck.


Residents and passers by were shocked by the horror of the crash.


The Public Prosecution Office in Giza has opened an investigation into the incident.


Preliminary investigation showed that the Suzuki driver slowed down so that the minibus could pass the intersection. But the speeding bus hit the car.


The bodies were handed over to the families for burial.


An investigation has also been ordered to probe the cars’ technical specifications involved in the crash.


Authorities have urged members of the public to adhere to traffic rules and remain cautious at traffic intersections.
