1 Dead, 9 Injured in Route 31 Crash

The road, which runs from the Lehavim Junction to the Dead Sea, has been the scene of six fatal accidents so far this year.

Traffic accidents on the Negev's Route 31 have killed 30 people over the last three years, and the death toll is liable to reach 100 more over the coming decade if the situation isn't improved, the Or Yarok road safety organization warned yesterday after a frontal collision claimed the road's latest victim.
