CAIRO, June 7 (Xinhua) -- At least four women were killed and ten others wounded when a pickup crashed with an agricultural tractor on a highway in Egypt's Nile Delta Province of Gharbia on Wednesday.

Initial investigations found the pickup driver, carrying 14 laborers on the truck, was running too fast to control the wheel and ran into a tractor leaving an agricultural field to join the highway, local media reported.

Ambulances rushed to the scene to transfer the victims to the nearest public hospital, according to the report.

In Egypt, high speed, poor maintenance of roads, and lax enforcement of traffic laws are the main causes of road accidents that claim thousands of lives every year.
