Soldier seriously injured in morning bulldozer accident — IDF

The Israeli military says one of the soldiers wounded in this morning’s bulldozer accident sustained serious injuries, while the second was lightly hurt.

The army had previously not released the extent of the soldiers’ injuries until their families could be notified.

The servicemen were wounded when the D-9 bulldozer they were riding in flipped over during an exercise on the Golan Heights.

The two soldiers were sent to Haifa’s Rambam Medical Center for treatment.

Following the accident, the head of IDF Ground Forces Maj. Gen. Kobi Barak appointed a colonel-led team to investigate how bulldozer operators are trained and other related issues.
