A 70-year-old pedestrian was killed this evening (Tuesday) in a car accident on Maccabim Road in Rishon Lezion. Earlier, a 60-year-old pedestrian was killed by a bus on Road 2 (Coastal Road), near the southern entrance to Haifa.

A pedestrian killed in Rishon Lezion was hit by a passing vehicle. At the time, another accident occurred, between a motorcycle and a car, in which a 52-year-old man was moderately injured. MDA medics and paramedics who were called to the scene said the woman suffered a multi-system injury and lay on the road with no signs of life.

“When we arrived at the scene,” said Yuval Shiovitz, a senior medic at MDA, “we saw two wounded and there was a commotion in the arena. A 70-year-old woman was lying in the middle of the road unconscious, with no pulse and no breathing. We performed medical tests and after resuscitation operations, her death was determined in the field. A 52-year-old man who was riding a motorcycle and was hit by a vehicle in another accident at the same place suffered injuries to his limbs. After initial treatment he is evacuated to hospital in fair condition. The two drivers of the vehicles that were involved in the accidents were inspected in the field and did not need to be evacuated. “

We immediately started giving him advanced medical care that included massages, resuscitation and medication. “After lengthy resuscitation efforts, we had to determine his death.”

The traffic inspectors of the Israel Police began investigating the circumstances of the accident. The bus driver, a 43-year-old resident of Kiryat Yam, was detained for questioning.
