Car rips through crowd at Black Lives Matter protest and counter-protest in Yorba Linda; driver arrested – OCRegister

26September 2020

A Black Lives Matter protest versus police brutality and systemic racism was met a counter-protest and turned violent when a car drove through the crowd in Yorba Linda on Saturday afternoon, Sept. 26.

The driver, a 40-year-old lady referred to as a Black Lives Matter advocate, was arrested on suspicion of attack with a lethal weapon and attempted murder, authorities said.

The BLM march occurred on Imperial Highway near Yorba Linda Boulevard, with counter-protesters shouting insults while carrying American flags and Trump 2020 banners collected along the other side. At one point, the counter-protesters crossed the six-lane highway and confronted the BLM group. In person, the sides at the same time screamed “Black Lives Matter” and “U.S.A.”

As the dispute grew more heated, with reports that some people had weapons, constable’s authorities declared an unlawful assembly and purchased all protesters to distribute.

Minutes later on, a white sedan in the Yorba Linda Public Library parking lot sped up through the crowd.

Dennis Breckner. One man had actually a bloodied ideal leg; a plaster was tied on by a piece of cloth with an American flag design. People chased after the cars and truck, which stopped a couple of hundred lawns away and was surrounded by constable’s deputies.

It was not immediately clear how quick the sedan was going. The back windshield was broken out and appeared to have a flagpole sticking out of it. The front windshield was smashed. The driver, Tatiana Turner of Long Beach, was participating in the protest as a fan of Caravan for Justice, said Orange County Sheriff’s spokesperson Carrie Braun. The group, which planned Saturday’s occasion, projects versus
