A woman was killed and three others hurt after an SUV plowed into a group of protesters Sunday night in Uptown.

The Minneapolis Police Department said the suspect was pulled from his vehicle by protestors after the 11:39 p.m. crash and is now in custody and being treated for injuries at a hospital. An Instagram video shot by protesters shows the man being pulled from the SUV and held by protesters until officers arrived to take him into custody.

The crash happened at the intersection of West Lake Street and Girard Avenue South. The SUV was travelling east on Lake Street when it slammed into a group of protesters. Emergency crews brought two injured protesters to Hennepin Healthcare for treatment. Two others later sought medical attention for non-life-threatening injuries at area hospitals.

A woman, who was critically injured in the crash, died from her injuries. Relatives identified her as 31-year-old Deona Knajdek.

Her brother said he saw video of the crash that showed the SUV slamming into Knajdek’s car before hitting protesters. Knajdek was using her car to block the intersection to protect the protesters as they demonstrated.
