Eight people were killed in southern Egypt when a vehicle crashed into a passing train on Saturday, a health ministry official said.
Eight people were also injured in the accident in Aswan province, Ehab Hanafy said.
He said the driver of the vehicle, which was transporting passengers for a fare, lost control and drove into the train as it was passing, crashing into its side.
It was not immediately clear whether the vehicle was a microbus or an old sedan fitted out to carry more passengers.
Such accidents are common in Egypt. In March 2015, seven people were killed when a school bus and a train collided near Cairo.
