French citizens Claude Issac and Eric Rubic have spoken to an Israeli attorney
specializing in traffic accidents, Channel 10 reported on Sunday night.
The two fled the country a month ago after their sports utility vehicle struck and killed
25-year-old Lee Zeitouni.
Issac and Rubic requested that the attorney begin discussions with state
prosecutors in order to investigate their options for a plea bargain or
'I hope hit-and-run suspects stand trial in Israel'

In an interview with Channel 10 last month, Issac, who is suspected of
having been behind the wheel when the vehicle struck Zeitouni, said, “We want to
be in Israel, to go to the family and explain how much it hurts us too.
But what can we do today? We killed a Jewish woman who was 25. For us
this is the end of the world."
"Our life is over," he added, "But we don’t know what we can do."
“We didn’t see her at all. If I would have seen her, I would have
pressed on the brakes. But I saw her only when she was hit,” Issac said.
