Minivan driver collides with several protestersJune 10, 2020
By The Associated Press
INDIANAPOLIS — The driver of a minivan struck several people protesting in Indianapolis over the death of George Floyd.
No one was believed to be seriously injured in the 8:30 p.m. Monday collision, Indianapolis police Officer Genae Cook told The Indianapolis Star.
The minivan pulled from behind a truck that was backing up after being blocked by some protesters in the street, Shakeela Dozier, 21, of Indianapolis, told the newspaper. Dozier said she was among a group of protesters at the city’s Monument Circle.
Video taken by a bystander shows what appears to be at least three people striking the hood of the minivan before it drove away.
“There was damage done to the vehicle and the vehicle attempted to leave the area," Cook said.
The minivan driver was located and was cooperating with police, Cook added.
Floyd died after an officer pressed his knee into his neck for several minutes even after the handcuffed black man pleaded for air and stopped moving. Four Minneapolis officers are charged in connection with Floyd’s death.
