Six people were killed in separate road accidents over the weekend in Israel.
A 30-year-old woman was killed Saturday morning on Route 70 in the Lower Galilee, between Evlayim Junction and the city of Tamra, when the car she was driving ran into a bus. Three teenage passengers on the bus, who were slightly injured and suffering from shock, were taken to Rambam Medical Center in Haifa.
Magen David Adom paramedic Dor Lev said the woman had been trapped in her car in critical condition and was declared dead at the scene. The police have launched an investigation.
Also on Saturday, a man was killed when his tractor overturned in a field near Taibeh in central Israel. Paramedic Avi Yolin said: “When we arrived we saw the tractor driver pinned under the overturned tractor, unconscious with severe injuries to his torso.” Yolin said the ambulance team declared the man dead at the scene.
Four people were killed in accidents on Friday. Two of them were 15 years old. One of the teenagers died after he was struck by a car while riding on an electric scooter in Ashdod. The other teen, named as Khaled Ahmed Dabah, was killed by a car while riding an electric bicycle near the town of Deir al-Assad in the Galilee.
