One person was killed and some 40 injured Sunday morning when vehicles overturned in three separate incidents. On Highway 60, a Palestinian bus overturned, killing one woman and injuring 34. Red Crescent ambulances evacuated a passenger who had been trapped beneath the bus to a hospital in Ramallah. The rest of the passengers - two of whom were seriously injured and the rest of whom were listed in moderate to light condition - were evacuated to hospitals in Jerusalem. An initial investigation into the cause of the accident indicated that the bus had been traveling too fast for the slick road conditions. No other vehicles were involved in the accident, and Highway 60 was closed to traffic in both directions. In a nearly concurrent incident, a Palestinian taxi overturned on the Adam-Hizmeh road, causing injuries. Meanwhile, in Jerusalem, one man was seriously injured and two other people lightly injured after a car turned over on Rehov Herzog. The injured were evacuated to Hadassah Hospital.
