The incident occurred Thursday evening when a truck driver veered off track to avoid stones being thrown by Palestinians toward the cars and crashed into a woman's car on Route 5 connecting Tel Aviv and the West Bank city of Ariel.
The driver hit the car coming up toward him, causing a three- year-old Israeli girl injured seriously and her mother and two sisters suffered mediocre wounds.
In another hurling incident in the West Bank, a Palestinian was seriously wounded by Israeli soldiers Thursday evening when two Palestinians hurled Molotov cocktails toward a guarding station in the area.
Earlier this week, a 25-year-old Palestinian was shot dead by Israeli soldiers after stones hit their jeep.
