DENVER (KDVR/WBTW) — Video shows a protester being struck by a vehicle after falling from its hood. The incident occurred Thursday evening on Broadway near the Colorado state Capitol.
The footage was taken by Annabel Escobar, and is about 21 seconds long.
At the beginning of the video, a man can be seen on the hood of a Ford Edge while several other protesters surround the vehicle.
As the SUV moved forward, the man fell from the hood and the vehicle’s driver then turned to the right and struck the man.
The driver then took off, heading southbound on Broadway.
Thursday’s demonstrations were in response to the death of George Floyd, a man who was killed by a Minneapolis police officer earlier this week.
In Denver, the protests turned violent and forced street closures throughout central parts of the city.
Vehicles at the state Capitol were damaged, and the building itself was vandalized.
