Three members of one family were killed on Saturday evening when their car was crushed by a tractor-trailer on Highway 70, in the western Galilee. In addition to the fatalities, one person was seriously injured, another was moderately hurt, and a third person suffered light wounds. Magen Davd Adom teams evacuated two of the wounded to Rambam Hospital in Haifa, including one baby who was transported by helicopter. The other person was rushed to a hospital in Naharia. According to an initial police investigation, the accident occurred when the driver of the truck, which was traveling north between Karmiel and Acre, suddenly lost control of his vehicle. The truck subsequently flipped onto a nearby car, killing three of the occupants within.
