At least two of four people killed in a bus-truck crash on Israel’s high-speed Highway 6 (Kvish 6) Sunday have been identified as soldier Cps. Chai Ben Naim of Rishon LeTzion, near Tel Aviv, and First Sergeant Kfir Dahari of Yavne, south of Rishon LeTzion.
The names of the other two victims have not been released.
The truck was disabled on the shoulder of the north-south highway, and police are investigating if the truck was jutting on to the highway and are questioning the bus driver why he did not notice the truck before ramming into it.
The bus was destroyed, and 30 other people were injured. Police have taken away the licenses of both drivers.
