One person was killed and 19 injured when two trucks collided with a packed bus on the Gitai Avishar junction in a road in the West Bank on Saturday afternoon. 14 people were lightly injured in the accident and 5 seriously. The accident, in which all casualties were Palestinians, occurred when one of the trucks failed to stop at a red light. The majority of injured were taken to a hospital in Nablus while a few others were taken to Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikva. Magen David Adom teams and an IDF helicopter helped in evacuating the injured Palestinians for treatment.
