A 13-year-old boy was killed and two others injured on Wednesday afternoon in a road accident believed to have been caused by the storm.

Magen David Adom paramedics said that they found the boy showing no signs of life on the side of highway 375 between Tzur Hadassah and Beit Shemesh. They said they were told by witnesses that he was hit by a bus that had veered out of control due to the storm, which had covered the road in sleet and snow.

A 16-year-old boy was also moderately wounded in the incident, as was a 52-year-old man lightly hurt with a head injury.

Earlier in the day a chain-reaction traffic accident saw at least 20 people lightly hurt as cars collided into one another near Migdalim in the West Bank.
