<p>In Egypt, where the highway law is routinely broken and roads are generally in poor condition, traffic accidents are commonplace.</p>
<p>“A horrific collision on the Cairo-Alexandria desert road near Wadi al-Natrun led to the death of 35 people, at least 18 of whom burnt to death,” said Al-Ahram, adding that “at least 53 were injured” .</p>
<p>Pictures shared on social media showed a flipped truck resting on scorched asphalt in the fast lane.</p>
<p>Several automobiles, some still burning, and at least one bus and a minibus, all severely damaged by fire, can be seen farther on.</p>
<p>As heavy black smoke rises into the air, crowds of people can be seen standing along the road, staring at the collision scene and the line of automobiles.</p>
<p>According to official statistics, the nation with the largest population in the Arab world had 7,000 fatal traffic accidents in 2021.</p>
