Authorities: Car strikes 3 at Occupy DC protest

DC authorities: 3 struck by car at Occupy DC protest in downtown, transported to hospitals By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' District of Columbia authorities say a car drove through a crowd near an Occupy DC protest and struck three people.

D.C. fire department spokesman Lon Walls said Saturday morning that the three were transported to two area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries. He said none was in critical condition but that some injuries were "fairly serious."

Hundreds of protesters affiliated with Occupy DC shut down streets Friday near the city's convention center in downtown Washington.



Police said the accident victims were all conscious.

D.C. Council member Tommy Wells tweeted that the driver was "stopped further up and in custody." He added that police would be checking his blood alcohol content, among other things. Wells said he was conferring with police officials about the incident.
