A 65-year-old woman and an 80-year-old man were killed in a car accident Thursday afternoon between a private car and an electric scooter near Mahanayim in northern Israel.
MDA paramedics tried to save the woman's life but her death was determined shortly thereafter.
The man who was critically injured was treated by MDA and evacuated to Ziv Hospital in Safed.
From the details known so far, it appears that the man and the woman traveled together on a scooter, and for an unclear reason they collided with the private vehicle. The driver was lightly injured and treated at the scene of the accident.
A police spokesperson reported Thursday evening that the 80-year-old man who had been injured in the accident had succumbed to his injuries.
