Footage shows a crowd of people then mobbed the truck and tried to get to the driver, while thousands scattered.

According to reports from FOX 9 Minneapolis, medics rushed to the highway to tend to the people who may have been struck.

As of yet, there are no reports of confirmed injuries.

Minneapolis Police Officer Derek Chauvin was arrested and charged on Friday over the death of George Floyd.

Protests continue to multiply and escalate across several cities in the US, as well as overseas.
