Driver ploughs into marchers at immigration rally in California

Driver ploughs into marchers at immigration rally in California”

A auto drove into a group of immigration protesters outside of Rep. Ed Royce's (R-Calif.) office 30 miles southeast of Los Angeles on Thursday.

In the clip, the vehicle pushes through a line of demonstrators marching across a junction.

Some of the protesters jumped on the hood of the auto and banged on the vehicle before he hit the gas and police intervened.

Police said no one was seriously injured, but the union that helped organize the event later released a statement saying six people were taken to a hospital for evaluation.

A video of the incident shows the exact moment the man, Daniel Wenzek, 56, rammed his auto through peaceful protestors in Brea, California. The union's president, David Huerta, stated that the members were apparent victims of "a deliberate and hateful crime". He was booked and released pending further investigation, according to Lt. Kelly Carpenter of the Brea Police Department.

Protestors in the rally were urging Rep. Ed Royce to support an existing temporary immigration program for citizens of several Central American countries. A group of police officers then surrounds the auto, bringing it to a stop.

"We ran over, fearing the worst".

A woman who answered a phone number linked to Wenzek refused to allow an Associated Press reporter to talk to him and hung up.
