Barea G. - Foto Propia. – An Israeli woman was killed and three other Israelis were injured in a collision between two buses in Mexico on Sunday. The accident occurred on a road between the resort towns of Playa del Carmen and Cancun.

The body of the victim was expected to arrive in Israel on Tuesday. Rabbi Haim Brod, the Chabad-Lubavitch emissary in Playa del Carmen, said that four Israelis, two men and two women ages 23-24, were on a local bus involved in a head-on collision with another bus. The driver applied the brakes with full force, which the rabbi said saved the lives of the three injured Israelis.

“After receiving a phone call from the young travelers’ families, I began to what I could do to assist,” Brod said, Israel Hayom reported. “First of all, I made sure they were transferred to the best hospital in Playa del Carmen and received the best treatment.”

The Chabad emissary in Cancun, Rabbi Menachem Druck, said he was in close contact with the family of the woman who was killed.
