The videos showed the car screeching to a halt shortly after it rolled over the protester's leg. A crowd immediately surrounded the car as people rushed to help the victim.
Paramedics treated the woman on the scene before an ambulance took her to Regions Hospital in St. Paul with very minor injuries, the Star Tribune reported.
Police did not take the driver into custody or ticket him, according to KSTP. Police told the news station that the incident was under investigation.
The protest was staged near the Minneapolis Police Department’s 3rd Precinct headquarters.
A Star Tribune reporter tweeted about the incident from the ground:
Moments after the woman was struck, a dozen demonstrators pounced on the hood of the vehicle, while others tried to free the victim.
Witnesses say that the woman's leg was caught under the car. She's being wheeled into an ambulance.
Other demonstrators are now standing, hand in hand, around the woman, who's being treated by paramedics in the middle of the intersection.
Witnesses say the car, a teal station wagon, started honking at protesters blocking the intersection, before running down down a woman.
