Senior Egged officials to be grilled over fatal crash

Senior officials in the Egged bus company will be interrogated by police about the fatal bus crash on Route 1 on Sunday, Channel 2 reports.

The bus driver in the deadly collision, in which six people were killed, crashed on the same route in 2013, also smashing into a truck and overturning the vehicle on the main Jerusalem-Tel Aviv artery.

“We won’t tolerate accidents like this due to negligence,” police say. “The more we learn [about the incident], we see that the entire company bears responsibility.”
