Per Buzzfeed, the incident took place toward the end of a protest march through the city. The march was in response to a July 4 incident where a Black man said he was attacked by a group of white people in what he described as an “attempted lynching.”

According to eyewitnesses and the police, a male passenger of a red Toyota car got out and threw an electric scooter that had been left in the middle of the roadway.

The woman, who was part of the protest, approached the car and stood in front of it with her hands on the hood of the car, the Bloomington Police Department said in a statement provided to BuzzFeed News.

The car then began to accelerate which caused the women to jump on the hood of the car. The man grabbed the car and clung on to the side as it “accelerated rapidly,” police said.
