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.
