Four people were killed in three traffic accidents in Israel and the West Bank on Friday.
A 60-year-old e-bike rider has died after being hit by a bus in the central town of Mazkeret Batya. Emergency crews found the man trapped under the bus and attempted resuscitation before being forced to pronounce him dead at the scene.
The police launched an investigation into the incident and detained the bus driver for questioning.
Around the same time, a woman in her 50s was killed in another three-vehicle crash on Route 44 near the central town of Camejosef.
She was evacuated to Shamir Medical Center in critical condition, where doctors pronounced her dead.
A woman in her 60s was seriously injured in the crash and two men, aged 64 and 30, were slightly injured.
Earlier Friday, two men in their 40s were killed when they were run over by a car in a tunnel near the settlement of Harjilo on West Bank Route 60.
They were found seriously injured and pronounced dead at the scene by medical staff.
Police have identified them as construction workers who may be on their way to a nearby construction site.
Police said they have launched an investigation into the incident.
Route 60 runs from Beersheba in the south to Nazareth in the north, and most of it passes through the West Bank. The route, much of which has not been updated in years, is one of the deadliest in the country.
According to the latest figures from the Road Safety Authority, 318 people have been killed in road accidents in Israel since the beginning of 2022, a slight decrease compared to last year.
