The Palestinian Authority Arab woman whose vehicle slammed into the Zinman family vehicle, injuring four and killing six-year-old Matan, has not yet been interrogated, Kan 11 reported Thursday evening.
According to Israel Police, the reason for the delay is that the driver is still hospitalized in Shechem (Nablus), and that her condition has not yet stabilized.
Initial reports say that the 27-year-old Arab was driving in the vehicle together with her sister, and at some point decided to pass another vehicle in a dangerous fashion, crossing a white dividing line and slamming with enormous force into the vehicle in which Rivka Zinman and four of her children were traveling.
Six-year-old Matan was killed by the impact, and his 10-year-old brother is still in serious condition. Matan's 12-year-old sister was moderately injured in the crash, and a six-month-old infant was lightly injured.
On Thursday, Matan's father, Haim Zinman, rejected the classification of the crash as an accident, saying, "When looking at all the facts, this was no car accident. If it happened in the center of the country, it would not be on the agenda. We want the case to be investigated. There are no policemen or soldiers on the roads today. Every day there are stones thrown. Think of our child. Our child is gone. Our children have fractures and injuries all over their bodies and it hurts."
