Police: 3 struck by car at Occupy DC protest

Police: 3 struck by car at Occupy DC protest in downtown; driver had green light, not cited By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) ' District of Columbia police say a driver will not be charged for striking three people taking part in an Occupy DC protest in downtown Washington.

Lt. Christopher Micciche (MITCH'-ih-kay) of the D.C. police said early Saturday that the driver was not cited because he had a green light when his vehicle struck the three on southbound 7th Street NW on Friday night.

He said witnesses told police that the three pedestrians "either ran toward or jumped in front of the moving vehicle." He said one pedestrian was cited for being in the roadway.



D.C. fire department spokesman Lon Walls said Saturday morning that the three were transported to two area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.

Hundreds of protesters affiliated with Occupy DC shut down streets Friday near the city's convention center in downtown, where a conservative group was gathering.
