Magen David Adom teams that arrived on the scene pronounced them dead. Another man was evacuated to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem. Several Palestinians who were injured were evacuated to a West Bank hospital. The car, en route from Jerusalem to Ariel, swerved and collided with a Palestinian taxi on the opposite lane.
