Shushan Baraby, accused of killing three family members in a hit-and-run accident in Netanya in August, will admit to hitting the women in court later this week, Channel 2 reported on Tuesday.
Baraby, who went into hiding after the accident and was apprehended only several days later, has thus far denied that he was driving the car that hit the women.
According to the Channel 2 report, he will admit to driving the car and add that he was not intoxicated or driving recklessly at the time of the accident.
Baraby will contend in court that the accident was unavoidable and that an ambulance was already on the scene when he fled.
