A serious motor vehicle accident on Highway 1 in the “Jordan Valley” in Israel has left multiple people seriously injured – including two Yeshiva Bochrim from Williamsburg, Brooklym.
According to a Magen David Adom statement, the accident happened on Highway 1 between the Almog and Arava junctions just before Route 90.
The two vehicles collided head-on, entrapping some of the occupants. Rescue personnel needed to extricate some of the victims. Both vehicles were occupied by Chareidim. One had American Yeshiva Bochrim inside reportedly returning from Meron.
MDA and IDF Paramedics were on the scene treating the victims, and some were airlifted by IDF choppers. A total of four victims (from two cars) were seriously injured. Some were taken to Shaare Zedek and some to Hadassah Hospital.
MDA says that a woman in her 40’s was the most critically injured. Three Bochrim in their 20’s were injured – two of them critically.
Additional victims included a 19-year-old girl, 17-year-old boy and two children ages 16 and 2.
