VIDEO: Truck drives through activists protesting for abortion rights in Iowa

Social media videos showed the moment a black truck drove through abortion advocates in Cedar Rapids, Iowa on Friday.

It was unclear what sparked the altercation, but videos showed numerous protesters holding on to the truck as it tried to drive through their protest.

“A man in a truck just ran over two peaceful protesters at the pro-abortion rally in Cedar Rapids.” tweeted Writer Lyz Lenz from the protest. “Everyone seems fine. A woman’s foot was run over. But it was terrifying.”

Lenz posted a photo of the truck that included the license plate, allowing online sleuths to track down the vehicle’s owner.

She also posted one of the videos of the incident:

Cedar Rapids City Council member Ashley Vanorny said she was there and tweeted what she saw.

“Tonight a truck jumped out of traffic and into peaceful protesters who were crossing the pedestrian walkway at Federal Court. I walked alongside them – there were children in the crowd beside me.” she claimed.

Cedar Rapids Police Department said At least one person was injured by the truck, but the injuries were minor.

Iowa was one of the states that passed Laws granting some immunity to drivers who injure protesters if their cars were blocked during the protest.

Protests erupted across the country after the US Supreme Court issued a ruling toppling the landmark Roe v. calf 1973 abortion rights decision. For decades, legal experts have admitted that the rationale behind the original decision was flimsy and poorly argued.

Critics of the ruling accuse the conservative judges of misleading Congress about their intent and willingness to overturn the key decision. Democrats have vowed to fight to pass legislation restoring abortion rights, but most experts believe their political power will be significantly weakened by the midterm elections.
