A man in the north of Israel was accused of running over a friend who owed him NIS 300 (approximately $90), leaving the victim seriously injured.
According to a Channel 12 news report on Sunday, the young man loaned his friend the cash and then demanded repayment.
The report did not provide details on the identity of the men, the location or the timeframe.
The lender went to his friend’s house and demanded repayment but the debtor was reportedly unable to return the money.
There was a confrontation between the two men, and the lender, who did not have a driver’s license, at some point got into a car that did not belong to him and ran over his friend, leaving him in moderate-to-serious condition.
The driver reportedly then fled to Tel Aviv and was arrested at a hotel where he was hiding.
“When the forces arrived at the scene, it became clear to them at the end of a quick investigation that this was not an innocent car accident, but an intentional injury. The defendant hit the victim, fled the scene and left him wounded,” police told Channel 12.
