A 31-year-old driver sustained minor injuries after his car – transporting radioactive materials – lost control and overturned in the Samaria region of the West Bank on Tuesday morning.
The accident occurred at 7:26 a.m. on Road 5 from Ariel in the direction of Tzomet Tapuach, Magen David Adom said.
The patient is being treated for his injuries and was transported by a Magen David Adom team to Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikvah, the rescue service added. A spokeswoman from the hospital said that details of the driver's condition could not be revealed due to doctor-patient confidentiality.
No spillage of the radioactive materials occurred, and neither the driver nor the surrounding area was harmed by them, the Environmental Protection Ministry said.
