התדרדרות אוטובוס בענבה - 30 לכודים במקום

A bus with approximately 30 passengers veered off HIghway 1 and rolled off the road near the Anava Interchange.

The bus hit the guardrail and tumbled into a ditch on the side of the road.

Magen David Adom (MDA) reported that all the passengers were conscious, and some had light injuries.

Firefighting teams evacuated the passengers, who were trapped inside the bus. The driver succeeded in escaping out the window. Thus far, four passengers in light condition have been evacuated to Assaf Harofeh Medical Center.

The accident has caused congestion on Highway 1 towards Jerusalem, from the Daniel Interchange to the Anava Interchange.

MDA paramedic Lipa Hirsch said, "We saw the bus lying on its side in a field on the side of the road. The driver escaped from the window and the passengers were sitting inside the bus. They were fully conscious and did not have visible injuries."

According to United Hatzalah, more than 25 people sustained light injuries and required basic medical attention after the crash.

United Hatzalah volunteer EMT Avi Press, who was one of the first responders at the scene, relayed, "Firefighters were active at the scene and extracted 38 people from the bus, some of whom were waiting in the area for a replacement bus and did not require medical attention."

"Together with other volunteers from United Hatzalah from throughout the region, including an ambulance team, we treated 25 passengers from the bus who sustained light injuries."

Traffic examiners have opened an investigation into the accident.
