A 17-year-old girl was fatally struck by a motorcyclist in Tel Aviv on Saturday night. The victim was identified as Hadar Ariel Tzur, a resident of Kiryat Netafim in Samaria.

The motorcyclist was seriously injured in the incident and hospitalized at Beilinson Medical Center.

Police have opened an investigation into the accident.

Magen David Adom (MDA) teams provided initial medical treatment to the teenager at the scene and evacuated her to Ichilov Medical Center while continuing to perform resuscitation operations. Doctors at the hospital were forced to determine her death.

MDA paramedic Idan Shina and MDA paramedic Gal Salhoub, who arrived at the scene on MDA motorcycles, said: "The girl was lying on the road unconscious with no pulse and not breathing. She was suffering from a very severe multi-systemic injury and at a great distance from her lay the motorcyclist who was also unconscious. We performed medical tests and immediately started life-saving medical treatment. It was difficult and the girl was evacuated in critical condition to Ichilov Hospital while performing resuscitation operations."
