Four Palestinians were killed when their jeep turned over at the entrance to Kiryat Arba on Saturday.

Police received word of the crash shortly after 6 p.m., and dispatched units to Route 60 in the West Bank to the scene. Palestinian police and large numbers of Magen David Adom paramedics also attended the scene.

The emergency workers found four bodies inside a badly damaged Land Rover Jeep, and pronounced all of the vehicle´s occupants dead after finding no vital life signs.

Police believe the driver lost control of his vehicle, causing it to veer off the road and flip into a ditch, leading to a tragic loss of life.

Palestinian paramedics evacuated the bodies to a Hebron area hospital, and identified two of the dead as brothers in their 20s.

Earlier on Saturday, on the same road, 14 people were injured when a minibus carrying Military Police fell into a valley near Jerusalem.

One person was moderately injured and thirteen were lightly injured, paramedics said. (© 1995-2011, The Jerusalem Post 06/17/12)
