A person was killed in an early-morning traffic accident between a bus and a private vehicle overnight while driving through the Carmel Tunnels in Haifa, Israel Police reported Friday.

The driver of the private vehicle, in his 20s, sustained serious injuries and was already unconscious when he was rushed to Rambam Medical Center for treatment, where he later died of his wounds.

A passenger in the vehicle was mildly-to-moderately injured.

The tunnels were originally closed off in the northbound direction due to the accident but has since been reopened.
