A 38-year-old father of five was run over and killed by a car Wednesday while crossing the street at a cross-walk in the Jerusalem suburb of Mevasseret Zion, police and rescue officials said. The victim, identified as Zilka Amodao, an Ethiopian immigrant who lived in the town's absorption center died of his critical wounds shortly after being rushed to Jerusalem's Hadassah University Hospital at Ein Kerem. The driver of the vehicle told police that he "did not see" the pedestrian in the morning accident which took place near the exit of the suburb, Jerusalem police spokesman Shmuel Ben-Ruby said. His license was suspended for 90 days pending the traffic police investigation. Nearly 400 people have been killed on the country's roads since the beginning of the year.
