MINYA, Egypt, Dec. 19 (UPI) -- A truck and a microbus collided near Minya, Egypt, leaving 14 people dead and two others injured, officials said.

The crash, which happened south of Minya, was caused by heavy fog and excessive speeds, al-Masry al-Youm reported Thursday.

No other details were reported.
