Elderly man killed, family injured in traffic accident

A man in his seventies was killed Friday afternoon and two women who were with him - his wife and daughter-in-law - were seriously injured, when their car collided with another vehicle at a Hod Hasharon junction. The man's son, who was driving the car, was lightly injured, and so was the son's daughter. Police said the two cars apparently collided when one of them failed to stop at a red light. The family's car then veered into a traffic light post, which subsequently collapsed onto the vehicle.
