Death toll of Cairo multi-vehicle crash rises to 19

Car crash in Cairo sets off fire at hospital kills 19

The Health Ministry and Cairo University issued statements that the accident happened after a wrong-driving auto crashed into three other vehicles, causing a loud explosion, and leaving behind many deaths and injuries from the pedestrians.

The ministry's statement said four cars crashed late Sunday, causing a blast outside the National Cancer Institute in the capital, Cairo. Initially, security sources quoted by Youm7 cited an oxygen tanker inside the Institute as the cause of the explosion. At least 54 patients were evacuated to other hospitals while the fire was later brought under control.

TV footage showed the windows of a nearby building were smashed.

Deadly road accidents owing to driver error and dilapidated infrastructure are common in Egypt with over 3000 killed in more than 8400 crashes in 2018, according to official figures published earlier this year.

"Sixteen people were killed, 21 were injured [.] during an accident at the Cancer Institute", a spokesperson for the Egyptian Ministry Health said.

He said they suffered from "several burns of varying degrees".

Egyptian officials speculated that a faulty auto battery sparked the explosion, causing a fire that damaged a nearby minibus. It was also possible that some bodies had ended up in the Nile, she added.

Egypt's public prosecutor is investigating the cause of the incident, the report said, but there was no official statement indicating whether the explosion was a terrorist attack.
