A Palestinian driver crashed his bulldozer into a police car and hit a bus on a busy Jerusalem highway Thursday before police and a taxi driver shot him dead.

An open Koran, the Muslim holy book, was found in the driver’s cabin, Niso Shaham, Jerusalem’s deputy police chief, told reporters at the scene. A police spokesman said it was a “terrorist” attack.

Palestinian residents identified the driver as Marei Radaydeh, a West Bank construction worker who lived with his family in the Arab East Jerusalem neighbourhood of Beit Hanina.

Police have yet to announce results of its investigation.

No Palestinian militant groups have claimed responsibility for the incident, which came a day after a visit by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
