Car strikes solidarity protestors

25 Nov, 2014

The dark-coloured Subaru Outback is reported by witnesses to honk at protestors near the Minneapolis Police’s 3rd Precinct building at Lake Street and Minnehaha Avenue S, before moving from a standing start to go around another car and into the intersection, striking at least one solidarity protestor and apparently running over her legs. Other protestors jump on the car’s hood and strike its windows before it drives off. Other demonstrators stand hand-in-hand around the woman, who is the only one treated for injuries. She is attended by paramedics in the intersection before being wheeled into an ambulance and taken to Regions Hospital in St. Paul with very minor injuries. The driver of the vehicle eventually stopped near E 31st Street and 42nd Avenue S., and the male driver is reported to be cooperating with police.
