20 killed in Iran car crash

The two Iranian girls who crashed while recording a music video as they drove have sparked a spate of copycat videos making fun of their stupidity. The video of the two attractive young women, one blonde and one dark-haired, shows them driving with no hands on the steering wheel. The driver is making a heart with her hands while her blond pal grins into the camera, both not watching the road as they dance to the song "Ghorboni" by Saeed Shayesteh xxxwho?xxx. A second later, they crash, and an airbag can be seen activating over the camera before the film ends. The two girls, however, survived, and after enquiries from all over the world have uploaded a selfie from their hospital beds, where they now rest together, to show they are fine. The failure to see the fact that it is it concern but amazement at their foolishness, many internet users have created spoof copies of the stunt, like this one posted a day later that shows two man faking a crash under the same circumstances, and then posting the same hospital style "selfie".

At least 20 people were killed and 10 others were injured in a car accident on a road linking capital city of Tehran to Iran’s religious city of Qom on Sunday, state IRIB TV reported.

The accident happened after several cars collided, a traffic police official said, adding that the investigation of the cause of the accident is underway.

All the victims of the accident are foreigners, mostly from Afghanistan, the unnamed official was quoted as saying.

Official figures show that more than 20,000 people died and 200,000 others were wounded in traffic accidents annually in Iran.

Inexperienced drivers and low-efficiency of the cars and the roads are blamed for causing the accidents.
