Tel Aviv: Six wounded as car crashes into restaurant

A vehicle went off the road and struck a restaurant in Tel Aviv on Saturday night, killing two and wounding another six.

The driver, a 40-year-old man and a man in his 60s were all critically wounded. All of the victims have been taken to Ichilov Hospital, where doctors declared two patients dead.

The hospital has opened an emergency line for the public. It can be reached at 1255133.

The driver is believed to be a 50-year-old man who lost consciousness before crashing into the restaurant, located on the corner of Ben Yehuda and Idelson.

A senior MDA medic said: "When we arrived at the location there was pandemonium. The wounded lay on the sidewalk, between chairs and on tables. The driver was unconscious in the car. We set up a triage and provided life-saving first aid to the victims, then evacuated them in our mobile care unit to the hospital."

Police do not believe it to be an instance of terror.
