QALQILIYA (Ma'an) -- Two Palestinian workers were killed Sunday after being run over by a truck in northern Israel, a police spokeswoman said.

The two were run over while they were fixing their car on the side of the road in Haifa on Route 70, Luba Samari said in a statement.

Samari called the incident "a horrific accident."

The victims were identified as Zahi Subi Abu Hamed from Qalqiliya, and Anwar Astal from Tulkarem, the statement said.

Zahi's brother Zuheir was moderately injured in the accident.

Police will continue to investigate the incident, and are questioning the driver, Samari said.
