Twelve people were injured when a minibus overturned near the Bilu junction outside Rehovot on Sunday afternoon. It was the third incident of the day in which a van rolled over, leading to a total of 36 people injured in similar accidents. Earlier in the day, one woman was killed and another was moderately injured in the south when a gas truck crushed their car. Also on Sunday, a 55-year-old motorcyclist was critically injured when he collided with a truck at the Geha junction. The truck driver fled the scene, and the police were searching for information leading to his identification. In yet another road accident on Sunday, a pedestrian was injured seriously when he was hit by a passing car in Kiryat Malachi. Since the start of 2005, 453 people were killed on Israel's roads.
