Palmer, who lived in the Kiryat Arba settlement near Hebron, lost control of the car as a result and the two crashed to their death.
Police had initially ruled out an attack against the car.
On the day of the crash, Palestinians had hurled stones at settlers' vehicles, particularly in the region where the settler and the child were killed.
