Traffic Accidents Leave 4 Dead, Including 3 from Same Family

Four people were killed Thursday in two traffic accidents in the Hasbaya and Ashrafieh areas, including three members of the same family.

"A green Mercedes cab, which was being driven by Nawwaf Younis, fell off an eight-meter-high cliff on the Mimis public road in Hasbaya and landed on its roof, which resulted in the death of Nawwaf, his wife Taljeh Younis and his sister Layla,” state-run National News Agency reported.

Lebanese Red Cross vehicles transferred the bodies to Hasbaya's state-run hospital as the region's police station launched a probe into the accident, NNA said.

Separately, the agency said a man was killed after being hit by a vehicle on the Elias Hrawi Highway near Sagesse University.
