A driver with an expired license died Wednesday when he crashed his car while driving at excessive speed en route to Beit Zarzir. One other passenger was seriously wounded in the accident.
According to police reports, the driver had sped past police flashing obscene hand gestures before losing control of their vehicle and flipping over. The two were rushed to Rambam Hospital in Haifa where the driver succumbed to his wounds.
Police suspected that the driver, 31, was under the influence of alcohol. His license had expired in 2002.
