We had no way to know what this dramatic scene meant when we encountered it on the Arava Freeway. Our natural assumption was that it was a severe accident. However this was much more dramatic - It turned out the police were in a chase after Bedouin drug smugglers who had just picked 25 kilos of heroin from the Jordanian border nearby.
When seeing a road block they turned around and crashed into the police vehicle seriously injuring three policemen including the commander of the special task.
