Two people were killed in separate accidents on Israel's roads Monday. In Petah Tikva, a 30-year-old man driving an all-terrain vehicle was killed after colliding with an Egged bus. An initial investigation found that the accident occurred after one of the vehicles drove through a red light at the intersection of the city's Jabotinsky and Einstein streets. The man was critically injured and a Magen David Adom team pronounced him dead en route to hospital. On Route 6, another motorist, 36, was killed in a car accident near the Baka al-Gharbiya interchange. An MDA team pronounced his death at the site and evacuated another lightly injured motorist to Hadera's Hillel Yaffe Medical Center.
