The driver of the tractor, Ata Mahmoud Na'amrani, was a 35-year-old Palestinian resident of the village of Zababde. His death was pronounced on the scene.

The driver of the truck was evacuated by helicopter to Haifa's Rambam Hospital.

The tractor was driving in the median without lights when the truck struck it and flipped over. The truck was carrying propane gas tanks.

Another tragedy on the roads

The accident was followed by another tragedy on the roads as one person was killed and 19 injured after a bus hit a safety barrier and a tow truck on Route 5 Thursday morning.



Magen David Adom Yarkon crews pronounced the death of the bus driver, aged 64, at the scene.

The 12 injured were in light condition and were evacuated to local hospitals.

The bus carried foreign workers from Turkey.
