Protesters hit by car near Riverside light display

A car hit some protesters near the Mission Inn in Riverside Saturday night.

Our ABC affiliate in Los Angeles reports “about 50 people were blocking Mission Inn Avenue at about 7 p.m. during the city’s Festival of Lights, an annual five-week attraction on Main Street Riverside that includes holiday decorations, lights, an ice skating rink and other entertainment, when the driver plowed through and drove off.”

No one was seriously hurt, but police are investigating this as a hit-and-run.

Some people nearby told police they saw the incident and took down the license plate number of the car.

The protesters were marching among holiday spectators, chanting against police brutality.
