One dead, one injured in West Bank hit and run

One Israeli was killed and another injured after being hit by a car near the West Bank settlement of Tzofim on Friday evening.

Two Israelis, a man and a woman, were critically and lightly injured respectively due to being hit by a passing vehicle while riding their bicycles.

The man succumbed to his wounds after being rushed to Rabin Medical Center-Beilinson Campus in Petah Tikva, where the medical staff determined his death.

Despite the incident being initially reported as a possible car ramming attack, the IDF Spokesperson's Unit stated the incident is not a terror incident.

The driver that killed one and injured another in a hit and run incident turned himself in to Israel Police two hours after the incident occurred.
