A severe car accident occurred on Tuesday afternoon when a truck somehow overturned on several cars in the Be’er Tuvia Regional District in southern Israel, killing three people and injuring six, one critically.

A large number of fire and rescue forces from the Ashdod and Kiryat Malachi stations rushed to the scene, where they found four passengers trapped in their cars. Firefighters began complex rescue operations to rescue the trapped passengers with the assistance of heavy hydraulic tools. A crane was used to help lift the truck from one of the vehicles.

The deaths of three people were pronounced at the scene of the accident. Six injured passengers, one in critical condition and five in moderate condition, were evacuated to Assuta Hospital in Ashdod and Barzilai Hospital in Ashkelon.

This is a developing story.

  1. When I drive on the highway and I see a truck, I always make sure to keep a nice distance from the truck. I go a little bit slower so the truck will pass me. Guess what even though I might go a drop slower than the truck, I am still making a descent Parnassa. Thank you Hashem.

  2. I will never understand, how come on the New Jersey Turnpike in an area where they offer a special lane “cars only”, many many times I see cars driving with the trucks on the other 2 lanes that are for trucks. Isn’t it common sense to drive on the two designated lanes for “cars only.

  3. Guys, if you see a truck, slow down, let him pass you. Please slow down guys, even if you slow down from 55 mph to 52 mph, that truck will pass you.
    The Parnassa that Hashem promised for you, don’t you worry, you will get everything till the last dime.
    Just relax and drive safely and maybe take a course online in defensive driving and save 5% on your car insurance for 3 years in a row.

  4. The reason that cars go on the truck lane is because there is less traffic there. That’s what I experienced on the turnpike. And if your careful you will not crash. I can guarantee it.

    Trucks usually don’t budge from their lane, and if they do, they are careful about it. They have been driving for years and know the ropes. Cars usually cause these accidents, because trucks can’t stop.
    Or maybe some cars missed the lane for the cars only.
