Israeli killed in Myanmar crash Print E-mail

A 62-year-old Israeli from Tel Aviv was killed in May in a traffic accident near the city of Bagan, some 500 kilometres north of Myanmar’s largest city, Yangon. His wife and son were slightly wounded in the crash. The son had been travelling in the country, where his parents joined him recently for a trip.

The family was travelling in a minibus when it crashed into a truck; from the force of the impact, the minibus was diverted, coming to a stop after hitting a house.

The man died at the scene and his wife and son were evacuated to a hospital in a nearby town. Israel’s embassy in Myanmar managed to secure the body for burial in Israel.
