A mother and her two children were injured when their car overturned near Migdalim, in Samaria, Monday morning.

The Judea and Samaria Police said that the mother and her 12-year-old daughter were trapped in the car. A baby boy was extricated from the car.

One of the children was in serious condition, according to initial reports. The mother and another child suffered light to moderate wounds.

Police discredited initial reports that the car may have overturned after Arabs hurled rocks at it. Several drivers who passed the location of the accident said that there were rocks on the road.

Police said that trackers deployed to the scene of the accident found no evidence that rocks had been thrown at the car.

Adelle Biton, 3, who was seriously injured when a rock was thrown at her mother's car in Samaria, was transferred to Beit Levinstein Hospital for rehabilitation Sunday. She was in critical condition for 2.5 months, but her life is no longer in danger. She is, however, only partially conscious.
