[VIDEO] Driver Plows Into Ferguson Protest Crowd In Minneapolis

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. The ‘peaceful rally’, taking place in the streets, had unexpected results for one woman:

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.
Other demonstrators stood hand in hand around the woman, who was the only one treated for injuries. She was attended by paramedics in the intersection before she was wheeled into an ambulance. The woman was taken to Regions Hospital in St. Paul with very minor injuries, said Minneapolis police spokesman John Elder.
The driver, a 40-year-old man from St. Paul, was questioned, and Minneapolis police said they’re investigating. The man’s mother said that he was coming home from work and “he didn’t even know what was going on” when he encountered the crowd blocking the intersection.
The crowd at the rally and march swelled to over 1,000 demonstrators.
