Vehicle Struck A Breanna Taylor Protestor on Sunset Boulevard

A vehicle struck a demonstrator and nearly injured several others during a protest on behalf of Breonna Taylor’s death at Hollywood Forever Cemetery, on Thursday, September 24th, 2020. The Los Angeles Police Department was one of the authorities at the scene. The vehicle was identified as a dark-colored pickup truck. It was traveling on Sunset Boulevard, where the protest took place and was traveling the opposite direction of the protestors.

Eyewitnesses mentioned that the vehicle was told to stop when the driver, an unidentified male, suddenly sped up his vehicle and struck a person who was thrown backward from the impact. This person was injured and sent to the hospital for further medical treatment. The driver gave a statement to the police that the protestors damaged his car first.
