A 25-year-old Jewish man was killed in a car accident just outside of Ofra in Samaria on Sunday morning.

Fire and Rescue teams as well as Magen David Adom (MDA) paramedics were called to the scene and declared the driver dead after pulling him out of his car.

Police called to the scene have not publicized any findings regarding the cause of the accident.

Zohar Maman, an MDA paramedic, said, “This was a serious accident between two vehicles. One driver, aged 25, was rescued from his car by passersby. He was unconscious, and had multiple systems organ failure. We administered immediate medical treatment and attempted to resuscitate him for an elongated period of time. Eventually we had to declare his death." 

"The second driver was taken by the Palestinian Red Crescent organization for medical treatment, and was lightly injured," Maman added.
