A man who stole a car in Herzliya was killed in a crash after escaping police, killing the uninvolved driver as well, Channel 2 reported Tuesday.

Upon reaching the road barrier, the man tried to escape police by foot.

He was then hit by a private car on the highway driving in the opposite direction, killing the driver as well.
