A Haifa woman is suing the ZAKA emergency response service after her husband was run over by one of their ambulances, while he was on his way to kill her, according to an attorney representing the woman in a wrongful death suit against ZAKA.

In a press release issued on Sunday, the PR company representing Attorney David Fayel said that earlier this year, the man's wife fled the house during a violent fight between her and her spouse. She then made her way to a friend's house where she hid out from her husband. Once the husband located her, he called and threatened to kill her, the attorney said he was told by his client.

The husband then made his way to Binyamina, racing on his motorcycle down the coastal highway when he was hit by a ZAKA ambulance and crashed, dying at the scene.

Attorney Fayel said that regardless of what his client's late husband's intentions were at the time of his death, the company is still responsible for causing his death.

The lawsuit was issued earlier this month and hearings have not begun in the case.
