Police: Delay Trips from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv


Police advised motorists to delay non-urget trips from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv, Sunday afternoon, because of heavy congestion caused by a fatal accident at the Ein Chemed Interchange of Route 1. One person was killed and firefighters were sent to the scene to pull injured victims who were trapped.

Not only was traffic on Highway 1 backed up, but the diversion of traffic to Route 443 caused congestion there too.
