Six of the passengers on the bus involved in the accident were also lightly injured and were taken to Soroka Hospital.

Investigators are dealing with the suspicions that the collision was the result of a flat tire on the bus. “The wheel exploded, the bus veered off the path, and then the collision happened,” said one of the bus passengers, reported Channel 10.
