MISHAWAKA, Ind. — Just as Monday night’s demonstration in support of Vauhxx Booker was winding down, a car drove through protesters and injured two people.
A similar incident was reported in northern Indiana. A car drove through a crowd of protesters in Mishawaka on Saturday and hit multiple people.
