A man in his 30s was killed in a head-on collision between a motorcycle and an ATV on Saturday in the southern-Israeli city of Ashdod.

The crash occurred near a local MDA station. Paramedics took the man to hospital in critical condition, where he later succumbed to his wounds. Marin, a paramedic, reported seeing “a young unconscious man suffering from a multi-system trauma.”

In another accident just hours later, two young men, aged 23 and 16, were injured when their ATV overturned near the Palmachim beach in central Israel.
