A man in his 40s was killed Wednesday morning in an accident involving four trucks on Highway 6 near the Kiryat Gat interchange.
However, rather than trying to help the people injured in the accident, bystanders allegedly decided to loot one of the trucks instead.
"Instead of lending a hand and helping, people are looting," a candy truck driver involved in the accident told Maariv.
Footage of the looting was spread on social media.
