Three people were killed overnight in a car crash in the West Bank: a 12-year-old Israeli girl and her 8-year-old Israeli brother, and a Palestinian man. They were killed early when an Israeli car crashed into a Palestinian vehicle in the northern West Bank.
Eight others were injured in the accident, four Israelis and four Palestinians.
The two Israelis killed have been identified as Uri Lipnik, 12, and Roy Lipnik 12. The Palestinian man has not yet been named.
According to the police, the Palestinian man likely lost control of the car because he was driving beyond the speed limit. His car then hit the road median and hit the Israeli car head on.
In the Israeli vehicle, the boy was left critically injured before succumbing to his wounds. A 35-year-old woman was severely injured and three additional Israelis were injured moderately - a six-month-old baby, thirteen year old boy and 37-year-old man. They were transported by emergency services to hospital Meir Hospital in Kfar Sava.
From the Palestinian car, a 25-year-old man was severely injured and was taken to Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikva. Three additional people were moderately injured and were taken to a Palestinian hospital.
