A driver mowed down a protester Tuesday at a rally in Minneapolis, where people were demonstrating against a grand jury’s decision not to indict Ferguson, Mo. police Officer Darren Wilson in the fatal shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown.

In footage shot by the Minnesota Star Tribune as well as another video obtained by local TV station KSTP, a driver could be seen plowing through a crowd of protesters and driving directly over one female demonstrator’s leg as she screamed in pain.

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:
