Council head says he warned of hazardous road this morning

Eli Levi, head of the Lehavim Regional Council, says he alerted the director general of the Transportation Ministry this very morning of the hazards of Road 31, where a pickup truck carrying a tractor lethally collided with a bus, claiming the lives of eight women and injuring 24 others.

“All relevant authorities are skirting the issue,” Levi tells Ynet. “This is a dangerous road with bad infrastructure,” he adds.
