Lawyers say cops caused fatal accident during West Bank pursuit

Police confirm a young settler was killed in a car crash in the West Bank during a chase, saying he and several others were throwing rocks at Palestinians, prompting police officers to pursue them. Four other passengers were lightly injured, police confirm.

Lawyers representing the group accuse the police of causing the accident, saying “a police car hit their vehicle with force from behind. From the force of the impact, their car ran off the road.”
