A terrifying moment at one of the many Ferguson rallies across America yesterday: In Minneapolis, a car plowed through a group of people protesting the grand jury decision. According to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, the vehicle's driver, a man, started honking at protesters who had blocked an intersection near 3rd Precinct police headquarters; he then drove into the crowd, running over the legs of one woman. The driver stopped, then took off again after being surrounded by protesters. Police say the woman was taken to the hospital and treated for minor injuries. The driver called police to report the incident and no arrests were made, reports WCCO. In Ferguson, protesters have gathered for another night amid a heavy National Guard presence.
