The driver of the car seemingly never even saw the protestor who was standing in the middle of the road. Other protestors were standing near the side of the road.

After the protestor was hit by the car, other members of the group of protestors drew firearms and opened fire on the car as it tried to escape the angry protestors.


According to a local media report:

Others among the roughly 75 protesters began trying to cut off the car, which then reversed direction to try to avoid the crowd, according to several witnesses.

At that point, witnesses said, several protesters pulled out guns and began chasing and firing at the fleeing car.


“I just started screaming, and the bullets started flying, and I started screaming some more,” said Heather DeMian, of St. Charles, a regular protester who has been live-streaming Ferguson protests.

It appears the driver did not intentionally strike the protester, according to Ferguson spokesman Jeff Small, who said the woman is being “very, very cooperative” with police.

“Investigators say the woman was simply driving down West Florissant at nighttime, unaware someone was standing in the street, until it was too late to stop before hitting them,” Small said in a statement Wednesday morning.

The woman’s car had several bullet holes in it from the gunfire of the protestors, but no one was injured by the gunfire. Police say the woman is cooperative and there are no charges filed so far against the driver or protestors.

“A lady came down and hit a protester — knocked the shoes off his feet,” said Sharon Cowan, who was at the scene. “Hit him, and he rolled and he bounced.”

The condition of the protestor is currently unknown as he did not wait for the ambulance and was removed from the scene by a private vehicle.

Here is video of the incident which was entirely captured on a smart phone camera by one of the protestors.
