Two people were killed and three moderately wounded in a road accident Saturday morning in the Galilee.

Police believe the driver of one car performed an illegal u-turn, blocking the lane of an oncoming motorcyclist who crashed into the car. The impact killed the motorcyclist and a passenger in the car.

Three additional people riding in the car, including a three-month-old baby, were moderately wounded. Two of the wounded were evacuated by helicopter to Rambam hospital in Haifa while the third was taken to a hospital in Safed.

Police are still investigating the scene of the accident, and have closed the highway.
