A vehicle hit a pedestrian and sped off near the West Bank settlement of Homesh on Monday, leading security forces on a manhunt for the suspect.
An 18-year-old man was lightly injured in the hit-and-run event and was evacuated to the Rabin Medical Center-Beilinson Campus in Petah Tikva. 
It was not immediately clear if the incident was an accident or a deliberate car ramming attack.
Police have set-up roadblocks in the area and are currently searching for the suspected perpetrator.
