“Yesterday afternoon (Friday, July 3) an organizer of the Black Lives Matter protest was parked at the park, downtown near El Mariachi. She was backed into a parking stall and a vehicle was parked on her left obstructing her view. When she pulled out there was a car passing by she hit it when she pulled out,” Police Chief Mick Selck said Saturday.
A video from a squad car dash cam clearly showed she drove into the side of the passing car on Madison Street.
