Car runs over group of people in Egypt

Post by DJKeefy »

A video captured by a store’s surveillance camera on Thursday showing a car run over citizens in a narrow street in Egypt has gone viral.

The footage reveals a car speeding in one of the streets of Monia al Nasr in the Dakahlia province, east of Cairo, as it runs over five girls and a young man as they passed through.

Recently, similar incidents have increased in Egypt. Two weeks ago, a young man ran over schoolgirls when he lost control of his car.

How on earth does the driver manage to do that? :ni: lets hope the people he ran down have all survived.

Not at all uncommon in Egypt (and elsewhere)...the driver seemed to be going rather fast for a busy narrow street - and somehow lost control of the car. It looks like it hit some kind of ramp and swerved.

The unusual aspect is that it was caught on CCTV.

I also hope those hit were not injured too badly.

Yesterday my friends sister phoned her to say that they had passed the body of a male dead in the center of the road, covered in newspapers outside the large Christian church. The place was swarming with police. Anyone heard what had happened?
