In what seems to have been an accident, a car drove onto the sidewalk and hit several people on Aryeh Akiva Street in Tel Aviv’s Madinah Square on Monday. One of the people struck was pronounced dead at the hospital, according to MDA and police reports.

Four injured persons were transported to Ichilov Hospital by Magen David Adom medics and paramedics.

One of them included a young woman in her 20s who was in critical condition and received life-saving treatment while being transported. She was ultimately declared dead at the hospital.

According to Israeli media, a 60-year-old female driver lost control of her vehicle, veered onto the pavement, and collided with a jewelry store and four pedestrians.


Every story is a world

In an era of social media and bloggers, false news spreads like a wildfire, igniting bouts of anti-Semitism, hate crimes and even wars.

Accurate and thoughtful journalism is needed now more than ever.

Throughout the year, we have worked hard to present stories and analyses about Israel and the Jewish world when they are needed most. Our reporters strive to tell the truth when others fail to do so.

Our ability to continue creating the content you know and read depends on you.

This Rosh Hashanah, we appreciate your support.
