Motorcyclist in protest critically injured near Petah Tikva

Motorcyclist hit by car

A 30-year-old participant of the motorcycle protest convoy was critically injured Sunday morning near the Nachshonim junction and Petah Tikvah. The motorcyclist was hit when the driver of a car detoured onto the shoulder of the highway, hitting the man. The driver of the car was apparently trying to surpass the slow traffic of the bikers. Protests against the raise in insurance for motorcyclists shut down parts of major highways around Israel Sunday morning.
