According to news reports, the accident, which took place between 6 October City and Fayoum governorate, occurred when a large truck crossed into the opposite lane and collided with a microbus carrying passengers.
The truck driver and most of the passengers were killed right away, while two of the three injured people died upon arriving at the hospital, raising the death toll to 19.  
The public prosecution has ordered an investigation into the accident.
This is the second major road accident to take place on the Ring Road this week.
Two days ago, a truck collided with a bus carrying workers from Saqqara to 6 October city, resulting in the death of two people and the injury of eight others.
Deadly road accidents take place on a near-daily basis in Egypt, which suffers from poorly maintained road infrastructure and loosely applied traffic regulations.
The government has allocated billions of pounds to developing and expanding road networks and bolstering safety in recent years.
Officials say the development of roads and highways in Egypt managed to reduce road fatalities by 44 percent in 2019/2020.
