On Monday night in Bloomington, Ind., a driver of a red Toyota accelerated into a crowd of dispersing Black Lives Matter demonstrators, injuring two of them.
According to the NYT, the demonstration involved several hundred people marching through the town that’s home to the Indiana University. The marchers demanded the arrest of a small group of men who had threatened a Black civil rights activist.
Video of the attack shows a woman clinging to the car’s hood and a man clutching the driver’s door handle as the vehicle zoomed forward.

In early June, a driver hit one demonstrator’s bicycle with a truck in Richmond, Va., prosecutors said. The driver, who was charged with assault, told the police he was a high-ranking Ku Klux Klan official, court documents said.
