Police: No Rocks in Samarian Auto Accident


The Samaria (Shomron) and Judea police issued a statement, Monday morning, that its personnel could not find evidence to support claims by eyewitnesses that the throwing of rocks by Arabs was to blame for the overturning of a car near the Samarian Jewish community of Migdalim. A woman and her two children were injured in the accident.

The accident occured slightly less than two months after a Hevron man was convicted of murder in the 2011 traffic death of Asher and Yonatan Palmer of Kiryat Arba'. Authorities initially determined human error in the crash but it was later determined that the car went out of control as a result of a stone that went through the windshield and struck Asher Palmer in the face.
