Police fear several people may have been killed in an accident that occurred in the Tiberias area overnight Monday when a vehicle's brakes went out, causing it to flip over and burst into flames.

A seven-year-old girl was thrown from the vehicle, sustaining light to moderate injuries, but MDA paramedics reported that six other people remained trapped inside the burning vehicle. Rescue workers were attempting to evacuate survivors from the wreckage.

Paramedics treated the seven-year-old girl on the scene before evacuating her to Poriah Medical Center in Tiberias.
