A reporter with the news agency ScooterCaster tweeted that the car appeared to speed up before hitting the cyclists.

The man filming the incident can be heard screaming “Oh s**t” as the car barreled past and hit protesters further up the road.


The car then sped off as protesters examined the broken bikes and came to the aid of the injured protesters.

The protesters reportedly continued the protest, voting not to stop the ride after the incident.
