Pictures from the scene showed a small blue passenger car of which the driver's window, and the back window behind the driver's seat, had been shattered.
Settlers blocked several intersections in the West Bank on Thursday night, as they have done repeatedly over the last weeks, in protest of the death of Ahuvia Sandak, and in some cases hurled stones at passing vehicles.

Sandak, a 16-year-old resident of Bat Ayin, in the Gush Etzion settlement bloc, died when the car he was travelling in overturned during a police car chase. The officers were after Sandak and his friends because they were suspected of throwing stones at Palestinian vehicles.
The case created anger among settlers, which was eventually directed both at law enforcement and Palestinians. Last week, police sources told Haaretz the case against the police officers was expected to be closed.
