Video footage of the incident in the link. Cant say I blame the driver for fleeing the mob.A vehicle plowed through a group of demonstrators in Minneapolis Tuesday afternoon during a march and rally in the wake of a Missouri grand jury decision not to indict a white police officer for fatally shooting a black teenager.
A solidarity rally and march for Michael Brown, who was killed by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, was planned Tuesday near the Minneapolis Police Department’s 3rd Precinct headquarters at Lake Street and Minnehaha Avenue S.
A Star Tribune reporter who is at the rally says that witnesses say the vehicle started honking at protesters blocking the intersection before running down a woman around the start of the rally at 4:30 p.m.
In video from KSTP’s Chopper 5, the involved vehicle goes around another stopped car and into the crowd as other vehicles go around the crowd. People appear to get on the hood of the car as it pushes its way through the crowd and it hits and appears to run over the legs of a demonstrator.
