Four people were killed in vehicle collisions throughout the country over the weekend, bringing the death toll on Israel's roads to 446 since the beginning of 2005. Near Kibbutz Gal-Ed, a man in his thirties was killed, a baby moderately injured and a woman lightly injured when a vehicle overturned Saturday morning. The victims were evacuated to Hadera's Hillel Yaffee Hospital. In the early hours of Saturday, a 46-year-old resident of the Galilee city of Ma'a lot was killed alongside her 29-year-old partner when their vehicle crashed into a semi-trailer truck that was driving on the shoulders of the road. Police are investigating whether alcohol was a factor in the crash, which occurred on the Akko-Karmiel Road near Gilon junction. A baby died after being run over by a vehicle Saturday morning in the Beduin town of Hura in the northern Negev. According to the initial investigation, the one-year-old's uncle drove in reverse and failed to notice the baby lying in the path of the vehicle. MDA teams that arrived at the scene of the tragedy tried unsuccessfully to resuscitate the infant. Police are carrying out an investigation as to the circumstances of the incident.
