The state on Wednesday filed an indictment with the Lod District Court against 23-year-old Yaniv Feirovskine, alleging that he hit two women runners with his all-terrain vehicle before fleeing the scene on August 31 near Kibbutz Givat Brenner.
At first, said the indictment, the accused simply passed the runners. However, the accused then turned around, ignored the runners' pleas to stop and ran down two of the runners, causing serious physical harm, the indictment alleges.
Next, the accused fled the scene, leaving the runners behind despite their being seriously injured and in need of medical attention, said the indictment.
After that, the indictment states, the accused went home and washed off the tractor to try to erase any evidence of the incident.
