A man walks through a crowd of protesters in Manchester | Connecticut News



MANCHESTER, CT (WFSB) – A driver walked through a group of protesters in Manchester this evening,

The group was partially blocking part of Center Street in Manchester when everything was filmed on a cell phone.

Unfortunately, police have no comment at this time as this is an open investigation.

Earlier today, the BLM 860 held a rally in Hartford, focusing primarily on the recent verdict in the Kyle Rittenhouse case.

They and BLM New Haven met Power Up CT and the Manchester Self-Defense Brigade for another rally in Manchester.

We are told that at one point part of the group moved to the streets of Manchester.

Then, as the group blocked off part of Center Street as an act of civil disobedience, a sedan with a Massachusetts license plate hesitated, then continued to speed through the crowd of protesters.

I just hung up with one of the protesters, Tammy Jones.

Jones has been protesting for over 40 years, but it was the first time she was part of something like this.

She said the driver had so much rage on her face that she couldn’t believe she was hit by a car.

Jones said she knew the time it took could only have been a few seconds, but it seemed a lot longer.

According to Jones, she wasn’t the only one affected. She said she was the one who was hurt the most. She was shot in the right side of her stomach and leg.

At one point, she had both hands on the hood of the car. She watched both wrists bend fully back when the driver didn’t stop.

Jones added that there was a woman in the passenger seat yelling at the driver to stop.

Jones says she filed a police report and takes the rest of the night to digest exactly what she went through.

She said she could go to the hospital tomorrow for a further examination.
