Three young men killed in car crash in Lower Galilee
Three young men from Haifa were killed in a car crash in the Lower Galilee on Friday evening.
The car of the three victims overturned near Tamra, east of Haifa. Two of those killed, in their twenties, were brothers.
Itai Mazor, Paramedic for Magen David Adom, said: âWe found a crashed car that had overturned several times, with all three passengers trapped inside. They were unconscious and had no breathing or pulse. A medical examination showed they had no signs of life, and there was nothing we could do but declare them dead. “
Hours earlier, three more people had been killed and three seriously injured after Israeli and Palestinian vehicles collided head-on in the central West Bank.
The victims were a six-year-old Israeli boy, whose name was not immediately cleared for release, as well as the two Palestinian passengers in the other car, Ahmad Salem, 17, and Ziad Ibrahim Shalesh, 19.
Initial reports indicated that the accident was caused by the Palestinian car, which illegally turned around in oncoming traffic on Route 465 near the Ofarim junction.
