(JTA) — A mother and daughter from Israel died in a car accident in Switzerland.

The two women, aged 27 and 54, were killed Tuesday afternoon near the village of Quinto, 240 miles southeast of Bern, the capital, the news website 24heures reported.

Their car was slowly advancing in traffic when a 55-year old French motorist forcefully rear-ended it, causing the victims’ vehicle to slam hard into the car moving in front of it, killing the two women, who were not named.

The French motorist was lightly wounded. Police are investigating the cause of the accident. The local Israeli embassy made arrangements for the bodies to be flown back to Israel, according to the Swiss Jewish paper Tachles.
