father helped him cover his tracks after the accident.
Police managed to find the two men after they received a tip
from a neighbor who told them that the two were involved in the accident.
Solomon was the caretaker of a synagogue in the
neighborhood, and was hit and killed while walking to the house of worship for
Solomon was one of three people killed Monday in traffic
accidents, including a 55-year-old motorcyclist in Tel Aviv and a 66-year-old
bicyclist hit by a tractor-trailer at the Goral junction outside Be’ersheba.
