An Israeli man was killed and another critically injured in two separate road accidents on Tuesday.

At 7:06 p.m., MDA received a call about a tractor that had turned over on Highway 40 near Gedera. Paramedics who arrived at the scene found the 26-year-old driver in critical condition. He later died in the hospital.

"He was trapped under the vehicle and the forces were trying to rescue him," said Nir, a paramedic. "He was suffering from a severe multi-system trauma."

About half an hour later, a 16-year-old was found in critical condition at the Givat Ze'ev intersection northwest of Jerusalem after being hit by a car.
