Dr. Nizar Toma, 46, brother of head of Kfar Yasif's council, his wife, Josephine, 46, and Nazrine Kareini, 39, Nazareth court judge, were killed on impact Thursday night as a car swerved off the road and overturned in Kfar Yasif in the Western Galilee.
The three were apparently attempting to cross Route 70 when they were hit by the car, whose four passengers were all injured, two of them seriously. Police said they were questioning the driver, 19, who did not have a valid license.
Emergency crews pronounced all three pedestrians dead at the scene, while the injured passengers were taken to a hospital in Nahariya.
In Kfar Yasif there was widespread shock and mourning over the deaths of the three, who were well-known in the town, with some residents angrily criticizing local road conditions and the lack of pedestrian crossings and adequate lighting.
