A semitrailer drove through George Floyd protesters marching on the interstate near downtown Minneapolis; injuries unclear.
The Minnesota Department of Public Safety says a tanker truck driver is in custody after speeding through marchers protesting the death of George Floyd on the Interstate 35W Bridge in Minneapolis Sunday, according to CBS.
The crowd swarmed the truck and pulled the driver out — he was severely beaten. Police say he was treated at a hospital and then taken into custody.
There’s no word on whether this driver intentionally tried to run over the mob or whether he was simply on the roadway trying to deliver whatever he was hauling.

While protestors were taking a knee on I-35 a semi truck driver ran into protestors. The police have arrived macing protestors instead of going after the truck driver. pic.twitter.com/BmqFseSmUJ

Today I witnessed pure evil. Thousands and thousands of protestors were PEACEFULLY marching the streets to demand #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd and a gas truck came barreling through the crowd. Pray to whoever you pray to for us all. #BlackLivesMatterMinneapolis #blacklivesmatter pic.twitter.com/M4mjHROxD0
