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.
