A two-and-a-half-year-old girl was killed after she was run over by her mother as she backed out her vehicle in their home in Timra, Saturday morning.

The 25-year-old mother did not see her daughter as she reversed out of the family's home in the lower Galilee. She was investigated by Police.

According to initial investigations, the two-and-a-half-year-old was standing behind the car, out of her mother's view. Family members at the scene evacuated the toddler to a local clinic where doctors ultimately pronounced her death, Army Radio reported.

Earlier Saturday, a bicycle rider was hit and killed by a car on Route 65 at Megido Junction. The man, in his fifties, was hit after he made a u-turn and entered the oncoming lane of traffic. The driver of the car was injured lightly and was evacuated to Haemek Hospital in Afula.
