Car crashes through crowd of protesters at Iowa demonstration

IOWA CITY, Iowa — A car drove through a crowd of protesters in Iowa City Friday night, hitting two people.

No one was seriously injured, the Daily Iowan reported

“When he went through the crowd I was shocked. I couldn’t believe someone would do that. It seemed like a deliberate attack,” Erik Fisher, who took video of one of the incidents, told KWWL.

Iowa City Police said they have no reports about the incident, KWWL reported.

The demonstration was organized by the Iowa Freedom Riders, who were demanding action by the city council on issues of racial and social injustice.
