  • Editor's Notes: How many people do you want to kill? In Pardes Hanna, two women were evacuated to Hilled Yaffo Hospital in Hadera - one in critical condition and the second in serious condition - after a van hit their car. An initial investigation revealed that the van's driver failed to stop at a traffic light, and police were investigating whether the driver was drunk at the time of the accident. Traffic police patrolling the country's highways arrested 33 drunk drivers overnight Friday. One driver was taken into custody after he rammed into another car near Mahane 80 in the North, seriously injuring the second car's driver. The suspect had 15 traffic citations on his record, four of which were for speeding. Police also revoked 27 drivers' licenses for speeding, and confiscated 25 cars for safety violations.
