People climbed atop a tanker as it continued to move after plowing into protesters who had shut down the Interstate 35W bridge in Minneapolis on Sunday.

The peaceful march of thousands of protesters Sunday turned into a scene of panic, as a tanker truck barreled toward the crowd on the I-35W bridge in Minneapolis just before 6 p.m.

State officials say the trucker may not have realized the highways had been closed. No injuries among demonstrators have been confirmed, they said.

Hundreds of marchers in downtown Minneapolis ignored the 8 p.m. curfew and were met with police lines and tear gas on S. Washington Avenue, where mass arrests were taking place.
