A senior officer in the military’s Computer Service Directorate has succumbed to wounds sustained in a car crash on Monday.

Maj. Efrat Shrem Zrihan, 34, from the northern city of Harish, served as the head of the cyber division in the Center of Computing and Information Systems unit, known by its Hebrew acronym of Mamram.

“Efrat was an outstanding officer, who is survived by her parents, two sisters, a husband, and a two-year-old child,” the Computer Service Directorate says in a statement.

Zrihan was critically wounded in a crash on the Route 6 highway, close to the Nitzanei Oz junction, on Monday morning while en route to her base.

Another man was lightly hurt in the four-car pileup on the highway, according to the Magen David Adom ambulance service.
