Rare video footage shows the panic inside an Egged 174 bus after driver was hit by a rock thrown through the window. 

The bus was ambushed by Arab terrorists armed with rocks on Saturday night. The driver suffered wounds to the head and lost consciousness, according to passengers. Apparently, however, he successfully brought the bus to a stop before passing out. A passenger said that the bus had been traveling down an incline and if the driver had not functioned as he had, all of the passengers could have lost their lives in the crash that would have resulted.

Rock ambushes have become exceedingly common on the roads of Judea and Samaria and are widely ignored despite the great danger they pose.
