Four people were killed, two of them children, and four others were seriously injured on Thursday afternoon after a truck overturned and crushed a private vehicle in Kfar Saba. MDA teams that were called to the scene evacuated the injured to Shiba Hospital in Tel Hashomer, Beilinson Hospital in Petah tikva and Kfar Saba's Meir Hospital. An initial investigation did not reveal what caused the truck to overturn and drag the car over a distance of some 20 meters. On Tuesday five members of a single family were killed when a car returning to Jerusalem from Lag Baomer celebrations at Mt. Meron collided head-on with a bus on the Jordan Valley Road. The driver of the vehicle, who was the only one to survive the crash, was hospitalized with moderate injuries at Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in the capital.
