A 12-year-old girl and her mother who was in an advanced stage of pregnancy were killed in a car accident between a private car and a commercial vehicle near the Ben Shemen interchange on Saturday afternoon.

Magen David Adom (MDA) forces performed CPR on the two victims in the private car and they were evacuated to the Beilinson and Tel Hashomer hospitals. The doctors determined their deaths upon arrival.

The medical team succeeded in delivering the baby, who is in serious condition. The father of the family and his 8-year-old daughter sustained minor to moderate injuries.

A preliminary investigation of the car accident revealed that one of the vehicles hit the safety rail and then was hurled back on the road where it was hit by the other vehicle.

An additional six people who were in the commercial vehicle - including three children - were injured. Their conditions are light to moderate.
