A Palestinian horseman and an Israeli driver were killed in the northern West Bank on Monday evening when the horse and car collided on a dark road.
The accident happened on Route 550, close to the settlements of Kiryat Netafim and Barkan, west of Ariel.
Paramedics from the emergency service Magen David Adom declared two men dead at the scene — one aged around 31, the other in his 20s.
Gennady Dobinsky, a senior MDA paramedic, said, “The driver of the car was trapped in the driver’s seat and was unconscious with multiple serious injuries. We tried to give him first aid, but his injuries were critical, and his death was declared on site.”
“The horse rider was lying on the road unconscious without any pulse, and not breathing..Within a short period of time, we had to declare him dead.”
