Case Closed in Traffic Death of Attias Family

The State Prosecutor's Office announced, Thursday, that there was no evidence of criminal wrongdoing in the death of eight members of the Attias family from the Upper Galilee community of Bar Yohai more than a year ago, when their vehicle went off the road as they entered Tiberias. At first it was thought that the brakes malfunctioned but it became apparent later that that was not the case.

Relatives of the family were not satisfied, saying questions were unanswered as to what or who was to blame, claiming it was not the first time that the model of vehicle in which the family was traveling was known to have accelerated unexpectedly. They said they would continue pressing for answers.
