Remand of Negev crash driver extended

The remand of the driver of the truck involved in Tuesday’s fatal crash on Route 31 is extended by three days.

The driver’s lawyer, Shai Gilad, tells Channel 2 that the extension is only to allow the police to finish their investigation, after which the driver will be released to house arrest for five days.

Gilad also says that the two police cruisers that accompanied the bus carrying the Bedouin women, eight of whom were killed, should also be investigated as possible contributors to the accident.
