A four-year-old child was hit by a car and killed on Sha'are Torah street in Jerusalem on Sunday.

His eight-year-old brother was also lightly injured in the incident in the capital's Beit Vegan neighborhood.

An initial investigation into the accident found that the younger child was riding on the handlebars of his brother's bike which veered suddenly into the street. The driver was unable to brake in time to avoid hitting the children.

MDA paramedics treated the two children on the scene before transporting them to Haddasah University Medical Center in the capital's Ein Kerem neighborhood. The four-year-old child was pronounced dead at the hospital after efforts to resuscitate him failed.
