Two motorcyclists flipped over from Highway 471 to Highway 4 at Bar Ilan junction southbound.

Paramedics and MDA paramedics gave them medical treatment and evacuated them to the Tel Hashomer hospital in critical condition. All the doctors' efforts to save them failed and they were pronounced dead.

Their names were released for publication this morning: Nirel Cohen, 22, and Yossi Mizrahi, a 19-year-old soldier, Elad residents, who were on their way to a birthday party in Tel Aviv.

Amjad Movorsham, the MDA paramedic who treated the wounded said, "When we arrived to Route 4 in the mobile intensive care unit we saw two motorcyclists lying unconscious on the road, suffering serious injuries. Upset passers-by who were there told us they fell off the bridge.

"We gave them emergency treatment and evacuated them to nearby Tel Hashomer hospital, with one of the wounded very critical condition and the other mortally wounded."
