Ohad Kadouri, the alleged drunk driver who police say was at fault in a Succot collision that killed a husband and wife and their son, was indicted Thursday in the Nazareth District Court on charges of manslaughter. Kadouri, 45, had 63 outstanding traffic and criminal offenses prior to the deadly October 7 crash. Police suspect that he was driving under the influence of alcohol when he swerved out of his lane to pass a slower car and slammed into the Hadad family's car. Mordehai and Mira Hadad, both 52, and their youngest son, 18-year-old Ariel were killed in the crash, and their 23-year-old daughter, Einat was hospitalized in critical condition. The Hadads, a prominent Safed family, were returning home after spending the holiday with another daughter, Esther, who lives in Migdal Haemek. Immediately following the crash, Kadouri refused police requests to offer a blood sample to determine the amount of alcohol in his blood.
