A pick-up truck driver plowed through a group of protesters in Los Angeles Thursday night, hurling one of the demonstrators to the ground before speeding away, according to reports.

The crowd of demonstrators were marching down Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood just before 9 p.m. when the black truck accelerated through the crowd, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The truck slammed into one of the protesters, sending them flying backward and onto the ground, video of the scene posted to Twitter shows.

The truck then sped away, nearly missing two other protesters, according to the report.

A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Fire Department told the Times that paramedics were called to the scene near Sunset Boulevard and Seward Street and rushed one person to a hospital. Further information was not released.

The protesters had gathered about two hours prior at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery to march against a Kentucky grand jury’s decision to not indict the cops involved in Breonna Taylor’s death in her killing, according to the Times.
