01-Dec-14: Terror-attack-by-driver... again

Ynet has this Israel Police photo from the scene of the attack
in the Samaria (Shomron) district
It's been a bad day for acts of terror: a stabbing attack and an attempted stabbing this morning [01-Dec-14: Knifing attacks north and south this morning"] and now:
According to Ynet, an Israeli man in his sixties is seriously injured after being run down by a hit-and-run driver today. He was found unconscious and bleeding in the middle of the road. An eyewitness says a sedan struck him and then drove off in the direction of Tapuah Junction where one of this morning's two knifing attacks took place. Police are conducting a search. He was rushed to the Rabin Medical Center in Petah Tikva by IDF helicopter, and is being treated there. The ambulance people of Magen David Adom (MDA) Yarkon branch say he has head injuries and has still not regained consciousness. 
Attacks by terror-intent drivers on Israeli civilians have been proliferating in recent weeks.

UPDATE December 16, 2014: "A carjacking that went awry was behind the death of an Israeli man who was found in a critical condition beside a West Bank road two weeks ago, according to new details of the case that were permitted for publication on Tuesday. Three Palestinians from the village of Kfar Akraba, who were arrested shortly after the incident, confessed to the crime during questioning by the Shin Bet General Security Services. Police have since reenacted the incident together with the suspects." ["West Bank hit-and run-killing was botched carjacking | The Times of Israel]
