As a result of the stone hurling, the car windshields were smashed, prompting the driver to leave the car and flee the scene by foot.
Once the man had left the scene, many of the haredim started clapping and proceeded to vandalize his car.
According to the witness, "they simply destroyed the car. Police forces rushed to the intersection and dispersed the rioters." A video circulating online showed the smashed windshields and police arriving at the scene.
A Jewish resident of Jerusalem said his car sustained damages as well during the incident.
The Jerusalem police noted that "during the protesters' riots… protesters hurled stones in the direction of cars passing by. An Arab driver who arrived at the scene was alarmed and fled on foot. Police forces towed his car and an investigation was launched into the incident."
