A school bus in Nazareth rammed into a wall at 9:10 Wednesday morning, injuring two adults and fourteen children.

Both adults sustained light to moderate injuries and 14 of the children sustained light contusions and lacerations.

United Hatzalah volunteer paramedic Muawia Kabha, who lives in Nazareth, was one of the first at the scene.

According to Kabha, "The accident occurred when a school bus ran into a wall near the English Hospital. 14 children who were in the vehicle were treated for cuts, bruises and they were all fully conscious. The two adults were in light to moderate condition."

Dozens of car accidents occurred Wednesday morning across the country, possibly due to roads made slippery by the first heavy rain, including a fatal accident that claimed the life of a motorcyclist on Highway 2 near the Tel Aviv district town of Kfar Shmaryahu.
