Winnipeg police say one man is in custody after a hit-and-run injured four people in front of the Manitoba Legislative Building Friday night.
Police say they received word of the incident near Memorial Boulevard and Broadway at 9:50 p.m. Friday.
Police spokesperson Const. Rob Carver said at a media briefing Saturday:
“(The Jeep) was moving at a pretty decent clip and it’s pretty miraculous that nobody sustained any serious injuries.”
In a viral video clip below, it appears as though the driver is intentionally ramming into the vehicle in front of it where the pedestrian is also standing. Protesters can be seen running to the person who appears to have been run over by the white vehicle as they help him out of the roadway.
