A truck and a bus collided in Ashdod on Monday, leaving some 20 passengers injured on the corner of Shavei Zion Street and Hertzl Street.

Magen David Adom paramedics were treating the passengers, most of whom were injured lightly from broken glass.

Emergency workers were transferring some of the injured passengers to Barzilai Medical Center in Ashkelon.

The crash came a day after six people died in a collision between a bus and a flatbed truck west of Jerusalem on Highways 1.
