A 23-year-old man critically injured Friday in a motorcycle crash in the northern West Bank succumbed to his injuries on Saturday, police said.
The man was driving on Route 55 between the Alfei Menasha and Karneri Shomron settlements when he lost control and flipped his motorcycle.
Magen David Adom paramedics called to the scene transferred him to Meir Medical Center in Kfar Saba in critical condition on Friday evening, but later died of his wounds early Saturday morning.
Police have opened an investigation into the circumstances of the crash.
In late August, the Central Bureau of Statistics released its car accident statistics for the month of July, in which 41 people lost their lives, eight of them in collisions that took place in the West Bank.
The number was a slight improvement from the month before, in which 34 people lost their lives in traffic accidents, along with 12 in the West Bank.
In 2016, the number of fatal car accidents in the West Bank rose to 32, with 42 people killed, compared to 28 fatal accidents that killed 34 people there in 2015.
Based on the statistics, fatalities in 2017 are on pace to reach an all-time high.
