Police were searching for the driver in a deadly hit-and-run accident Sunday morning that killed a 50-year-old Israeli man on the 505 highway in the West Bank.

The victim, who worked as the security officer at the West Bank settlement of Sha'arei Tikva was reportedly recording a Palestinian vehicle trying to sneak illegal workers across the Green line when the vehicle transporting them ran him down and fled the scene.

Paramedics evacuated the man from the scene, but he succumbed to his wounds on the way to Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikva.

Police have launched a manhunt for the driver of the vehicle, which was reportedly stolen. They have added that they do not believe that the incident was a terror attack but that the investigation is examining all possibilities.
