In the northern town of Muqeible, a six-year-old boy was fatally struck by a car as he rode his bike. Muhammad Baida was taken to Haemek Hospital in Afula where he was pronounced dead.
Police open an investigation into the driver of the vehicle that stuck Baida.
Shortly after, a motorcycle driver is killed on Route 70 outside the nearby town of Tamra. Police say the driver appears to have lost control of his bike and fatally struck the rail guard on the side of the road.
