A 60-year-old man was killed when a truck collided with his parked car along Route 77, near the Kidmat Galil Industrial park in northern Israel on Monday, rescue workers and medics said.

Magen David Adom paramedics who arrived at the scene found the driver inside his crushed car without vital signs. They were forced to declare the man dead after failing to resuscitate him, according to a statement.

The truck driver sustained light injuries and was taken to Poriya Hospital in Tiberias.

The circumstances of the crash were not immediately clear.

According to the most recent data released by Israel’s National Road Safety Authority, there were 310 people killed on Israel’s roads since the start of 2022.

I joined The Times of Israel after many years covering US and Israeli politics for Hebrew news outlets.

I believe responsible coverage of Israeli politicians means presenting a 360 degree view of their words and deeds – not only conveying what occurs, but also what that means in the broader context of Israeli society and the region.

That’s hard to do because you can rarely take politicians at face value – you must go the extra mile to present full context and try to overcome your own biases.

I’m proud of our work that tells the story of Israeli politics straight and comprehensively. I believe Israel is stronger and more democratic when professional journalists do that tough job well.

Your support for our work by joining The Times of Israel Community helps ensure we can continue to do so.

Thank you,
