Two 18-year-olds were killed on Wednesday afternoon when their car overturned on Route 383, between Kfar Harif and Kfar Menahem, located near Kiryat Malachi in southern Israel.

Three people were seriously injured in the accident and were evacuated by Magen David Adom paramedics to the Kaplan Hospital in Rehovot.

The victims include a 17-year-old male with bruises to his back and limbs, a 19-year-old man with bruises to his head and limbs and a 20-year-old woman who suffered bruises to her limbs.

Avi Eigerman, a senior volunteer paramedic with United Hatzalah, recalled, "As I was driving on the road, I saw a vehicle that had overturned into a ditch on the side of the road as a result of a collision with another vehicle.”
