An 82-year-old disabled woman was killed Wednesday morning when she was hit by a car on Petah Tikva's Herzl Street.

The incident occurred when the car veered from the road and drove onto the sidewalk, crashing into a bench next to where the wheelchair-bound woman was sitting.

Four other people were injured in the incident - one critically, one moderately-seriously and two lightly.
