A crash involving a school bus, a lorry and a car on the 169 km of the Egypt–Alexandria road in Beheira governorate has left up to 18 dead and 18 injured.

“All the cars were torched and 14 students were burned as a result while 18 others are in critical case,” a health ministry official told state-run television. “The casualties are now held in the Damanhour general hospital.”

The Egyptian armed forces sent a medically equipped aeroplane to transfer and rescue the casualties.

Eyewitnesses told state run Al-Ahram that the casualties included a child and a woman who were in the private vehicle, and students from the Orman Tourism School.

The prosecutor general is interrogating the school bus driver and some of the injured if their health condition allows it.

The Ministry of Social Solidarity doubled the humanitarian assistance for the victims and their families. Minister of Social Solidairty Ghada Wali directed the Social Solidarity Directorate in Beheira to help the injured and the families of the deceased, according to a Wednesday statement by the ministry.

A recent government report said that 100,000 car accidents took place in Egypt between 2008 and 2012, with 33,000 killed and another 150,000 injured.

In 2012, a train in the Manfalout area of Assiut collided with a school bus, killing dozens of children.

  • Cancel road accidents

    Cancel road accidents not hard to do because a similar system currently works in the agricultural sector.
    Agricultural system is more complex than necessary to the traffic system.
    So you can run the traffic system immediately.
    I’m talking about using Precision Farming for Precision Traffic.
    Mathematical examination of the passage shows that the Precision traffic less complex than Precision Agriculture from the known rule that in the surface there are infinite lines.
    The Precision traffic system educates and instills a driving culture.
    Precision traffic system reduces the time length of learning in dimensions of months.
    Form of education in the proposed system is similar to addition of hundreds of thousands of traffic policemen.
    The system works on the basis of personal mentoring.
    Any errant driver will be assigned a “policeman mentor”.
    The policeman will be a virtual policeman but will be fully present.
    “Big Brother Effect” will be treated thoroughly and virtual cop appears only when the driver goes through.
    The privacy of citizens will be preserved carefully. Drivers driving according the law will not be recorded and will not be documented.
    I have the unpleasant feeling that we can save thousands of people a year and do not rescuers.
    That Related to thousands injured people and considerable financial losses.
    Today it is possible to run a small order of tens of vehicles to demonstrate feasibility.
    All the tools are exist but are not used.
    The system will help to the police identify speeders and it will help law to enforcement and reducing vulnerability to life and property.
    This understanding is the educational way that cause to drivers to not breaking the law and operate under the law and the roads conditions.
    Precision Traffic based on Precision Farming provides a solution that includes all areas of driving and most important is education drivers.
    Precision Traffic Can be used as a Driving Teacher, a Driving guide, as accompanied a driving, as a driving mentor, and policeman and judge . The report would be sent directly to the driver at the address listed at the DMV.
    Unfortunately to keep a distance not sufficient a warning, the driver must slow down and increase the distance from the vehicle in front. Maintaining the appropriate distance depends on the will of the driver in another language and education.
    No deterrent without punishment!
    I’ll go to any place and to any forum to explain the proposed system and answer questions as needing.
    Precision Traffic
