A protestor in Ferguson, Missouri was hit by a car traveling at high speed while attending a protest on the anniversary of the death of Michael Brow. The protestor was standing alone, in the middle of a multi-lane highway when the accident happened.

The driver of the car seemingly never even saw the protestor who was standing in the middle of the road. Other protestors were standing near the side of the road.

After the protestor was hit by the car, other members of the group of protestors drew firearms and opened fire on the car as it tried to escape the angry protestors.

According to a local media report:

Others among the roughly 75 protesters began trying to cut off the car, which then reversed direction to try to avoid the crowd, according to several witnesses.

At that point, witnesses said, several protesters pulled out guns and began chasing and firing at the fleeing car.

I just started screaming, and the bullets started flying, and I started screaming some more, said Heather DeMian, of St. Charles, a regular protester who has been live-streaming Ferguson protests.

It appears the driver did not intentionally strike the protester, according to Ferguson spokesman Jeff Small, who said the woman is being very, very cooperative with police.

Investigators say the woman was simply driving down West Florissant at nighttime, unaware someone was standing in the street, until it was too late to stop before hitting them, Small said in a statement Wednesday morning.

The womans car had several bullet holes in it from the gunfire of the protestors, but no one was injured by the gunfire. Police say the woman is cooperative and there are no charges filed so far against the driver or protestors.
