Shocking footage has surfaced of a pickup truck hitting a woman after plowing into a crowd of Black Lives Matter protesters in Los Angeles.
The chaos unfolded on Thursday after nightfall on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, where protesters attempted to march to an LAPD substation to protest Breonna Taylor’s grand jury verdict.
Footage from the ground and a KTLA-TV news ax shows a black pickup truck plowing into the crowd, beating a woman and throwing her on the sidewalk.

As the protesters swarm around the truck and try to open the driver’s side door, the truck rushes away, appears to drive over the injured demonstrator and narrowly misses a street worker rushing to nurse her.
An LAPD helicopter following the protest was able to follow the truck as it drove away and command ground units to run over the driver.
The truck driver was taken into police custody but his name has not been released and information about the charges was not immediately available.
The woman was taken to a hospital and her condition was unclear late on Thursday

A second incident at the Hollywood protest was also captured on camera by the KTLA news ax, in which a white Prius became trapped in the crowd and rushed away.
A truck accompanying the protesters chased the Prius and cut it, and protesters stormed the car and tried to get the keys.
However, the Prius managed to escape. It was later stopped by the police, but the driver was not arrested or charged.
