MINNEAPOLIS — Two Minneapolis rallies to demonstrate against the grand jury’s decision in Ferguson, Missouri, drew several hundred people on Tuesday, with a scary moment when a car struck one protester and then burst through a pack of other protesters when they quickly surrounded it.

Police said a woman suffered minor injuries and was taken to a hospital by ambulance. Footage from a news helicopter appeared to show at least one person being driven over as the car left the scene near the city’s 3rd Precinct police station.

The driver called police soon after to report the incident, and police spokesman Scott Seroka said no one was arrested.
