A man riding an electric bicycle was killed Tuesday in a collision with a truck on Route 40 in the central region, adding to what was already a significantly deadly year on the roads compared to 2020.
Paramedics from the Magen David Adom emergency service, who were called to the Hatayasim Junction where the crash happened, said they found the man, in his 20s, lying at the side of the road with multiple serious injuries and no vital signs.
They pronounced him dead at the scene.
