A 3-year-old Israeli girl is in critical condition after a car accident in the West Bank caused by rocks thrown by Palestinians.

A car driven by a woman and her three young daughters veered off course Thursday night after being hit by a rock, crashing into a truck or bus, Haaretz reported, citing eyewitnesses. Ynet reported that the truck veered off course to avoid the rocks and crashed into the woman's car.

The woman and her other daughters, ages 4 and 5, also were injured in the accident on Route 5 near the West Bank Jewish city of Ariel. A bus also was hit with rocks.

An Israeli man and a 10-year-old boy also were injured by thrown rocks in the same area.

Before the accident, a number of drivers had reported coming under attack by rocks. Police reportedly are investigating the accident's cause.
