A semi-truck ran through a crowd of protesters gathered on an interstate highway in Minneapolis on May 31, with several of the demonstrators filmed clinging to the heavy vehicle.
The Minneapolis Department of Public Safety said the truck driver was arrested and taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries after “inciting a crowd of peaceful demonstrators” in the incident on the Interstate 35 highway.
It appeared no protesters had been hit by the truck and authorities were trying to determine how the truck got onto the highway, the department said.
Protests were held across the globe on Sunday as demonstrators continued taking to the streets following the police-involved death of George Floyd in Minneapolis on Monday. Credit: Ermeen Eebreeheemee via Storyful
