20 Injured In Bus Accident At Entrance To Jerusalem [VIDEO & PHOTOS]

Twenty bus passengers were lightly injured in a traffic accident between two buses and a private vehicle near the Gesher Meitarim at the entrance to Jerusalem on Monday evening.

One of the bus drivers was rescued in a light-moderate condition after being trapped inside the bus.

MDa and Hatzalah paramedics who arrived at the scene administered emergency medical aid to the victims and evacuated 20 passengers to Shaare Tzedek and Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospitals.

MDA paramedic Eldad Benstein said: “When we arrived at the scene, we saw two buses full of passengers that had lightly collided with each other. All the passengers got off the buses by themselves and were walking around. We performed an initial evaluation and about 20 of the passengers complained of minor abrasions and bruises. We provided first aid and evacuated them for further tests and treatments at hospitals.”

United Hatzalah paramedics Ari Knepler and Yosef Chaim Gabbai said: “This was an accident involving two buses and a private vehicle. We provided first aid at the scene to the driver of the vehicle, the bus drivers, and about 20 lightly injured passengers. Others were treated at the scene and refused to be evacuated to hospitals for tests.”

  1. I am just thinking of all the traffic back up this must have caused, & especially for people who had long ago pre-booked Dr appointments & people who had flights to catch.

  2. @147
    This happened close to midnight. Probably no issues with Dr. appointments, even with socialized medicine. I don’t know flight schedules but I imagine that most people would probably already take the 443 to the airport.

  3. Am I the only one to catch 147’s attempt at sarcasm in a shaded reference to peleg et al protests at that site? I got it 147, but it was a lame attempt.

  4. 147,
    As my father always says: “Anytime you’re stuck in traffic, just take a minute to thank Hashem that you’re not the one causing the traffic…”.
