A 30-year-old man was killed this evening (Friday) on Road 4 near Givat Shmuel, after slipping with the motorcycle he was riding. The MDA team that was called to the scene of the accident determined his death on the spot. This is the 72nd motorcyclist killed this year.
The report of the accident was received at 5:19 PM at MDA’s 101 hotline in the Yarkon area. MDA paramedic Tomer Guzman and MDA paramedic Shlomo Levy said: “The rider was lying on the road about 15 meters from the motorcycle while unconscious and suffering an injury. Multi-system. We performed medical tests but he was without signs of life and we have no choice but to determine his death. “
“I have no anger for the bus driver,” said Ami Ben-Eli – the brother of Father Reuven who was injured in an accident on Route 89 and was taken by ambulance to a funeral in Maalot yesterday. After Besson’s 76-year-old funeral today, the brother added: “I very much share the family’s grief. I know they have lost the most precious thing of all. But we want to hear from road accident investigators what exactly happened there.”
