The teenager, a pedestrian, was hit by a car in the central Arab city of Taibe.

The driver was taken in for questioning.

A man in his 60’s was killed after a collision with a truck trapped him in his car close to the Horshim Junction, east of Kfar Saba, on the country’s north-south Route 6 highway.

Fireman were forced to cut him free from the wreckage and the Magen David Adom emergency crew pronounced him dead at the scene.

The truck driver was unhurt.
