The amateur video starts with a tire screech of what looks to be a silver Dodge Charger, which then accelerates forward toward a group of peaceful protesters. The car crashes into the rear of another car as people are heard screaming. The car, with a damaged front end, then shifts into reverse down the narrow street and drives away.
