Two Israeli teenagers were killed in a head-on collision on Wednesday while driving to a holiday meal.

Another two teenage passengers riding in the same vehicle were injured in the crash, as was the driver of the second car.

All three were taken to the hospital for further treatment.

The collision took place on Route 383 in southern Israel ahead of the start of the Jewish holiday of Simchat Torah.

An initial police investigation found the crash occurred after the car carrying the four teenagers veered into oncoming traffic, causing it to collide head-on with the other vehicle and flip over.

Hebrew media reports said the teenagers were all residents of the city of Beit Shemesh.
