Miracle in Herzliya – Driver of Car Hit by Passenger Train Walks Away

Last night at approximately 00:40 United Hatzalah dispatch called volunteer EMS personnel to the scene of a serious traffic accident that occurred on Hamaapilim St. in Herzliya. A private car had been hit by a train and thrown some 20 meters from the site of the impact.

The EMS volunteers from across the city rushed to the scene as did police, fire and rescue crews and ambulance services. Emergency crews braced for the worst upon arriving at the scene and seeing the state that the car was in.

Chen Ben Ami, a volunteer EMT and one of the ambucycle drivers in the area, was among the first responders at the accident scene and reported:

“We arrived at the scene after receiving the report of a serious accident. We braced ourselves for a death and to need to evacuate the body from the crushed vehicle that had been pushed quite a long distance from the crash site by the force of the train. To our surprise, we were glad to find that the driver had only sustained light injuries and was fully conscious and even able to walk. We treated her for her injuries before transferring her to an ambulance to be taken to hospital for further evaluation.”
