A security vehicle escorting Palestinian Authority caretaker Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah collided with an Israel vehicle near Bethlehem on Saturday.
The PA security jeep involved in the accident was returning to Ramallah from Hebron when it hit a car carrying an Israeli family near the Tekoa junction in the West Bank.
Red Crescent and Magen David Adom ambulances arrived at the scene to provide medical treatment.
The father of the Israeli family traveling in the car was seriously injured and the children sustained injuries ranging from light to moderate.
The family of six was transferred to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.
Palestinian medics evacuated three lightly injured Palestinian guards to a hospital in Beit Jala.
