The Haifa District Court sentenced a 24-year-old man to 34 months' imprisonment on Monday for killing two of his friends during an impromptu car race.

In 2006, Mahmoud Jabarin from Umm al-Fahem challenged his friend, Ibrahim Agbariya, to a car race near the Megiddo Junction. The two cars reached speeds of 130 km per hour before Agbariya's car span out of control and smashed into a lamppost, killing him and a front passenger, Adhim Agbariya. Two other passengers were injured.

Jabarin was convicted in a plea bargain of manslaughter and speeding charges, and was also banned from driving for 15 years.
