Firefighters from the Samaria Regional Station helped rescue the man from his vehicle, before he was pronounced dead.

The two men in their 30s from the other vehicle suffered minor injuries and after initial treatment at the scene, they were evacuated by a Red Crescent ambulance to a hospital in Palestinian Authority-assigned territories.
