UPDATE 9:42 a.m. EST:

Newly uncovered security footage showed the Palestinian driver of a truck involved in a crash that killed four Israeli soldiers went into reverse after the initial crash, apparently trying to hit more people.

Israeli police said a truck crashed into a group of soldiers on Sunday, killing four and wounding at least 15, CNN reports.

Jerusalem police spokeswoman Luba Samri said soldiers had just gotten off a bus when the truck steered off course. The driver was shot and killed.  Israel's foreign press spokesperson called the incident a "possible terrorist attack," CNN reports.
