A car drove through a crowd of protesters assembled in New York City’s Times Square on September 3.
Protesters had gathered in response to the release of bodycam vision showing the police arrest of Daniel Prude in Rochester. Prude’s death was ruled a homicide, caused by “complications of asphyxia in the setting of physical restraint," media reported.
In a video posted to Twitter, the car can be seen honking its horn before demonstrators block its path with bicycles. The car lurches through the crowd with several people knocked from their bikes in the process. This video shows the immediate aftermath of the incident.
New York Police said they were investigating the incident, and that the car did not belong to the police department. Credit: Ryan Petrus via Storyful
