The minister’s car reportedly crashed with three other cars on the NA road.
Police and ambulance arrived at the scene and transferred the victims, including the minister, to hospital.
Road crashes are commonplace in Egypt due to loosely-implemented traffic laws and lack of adequate road maintenance.
According to the interior ministry, 2013 saw over 15,000 traffic accidents which killed over 6,700 people.
