HOLLYWOOD, LOS ANGELES -- A car drove through a crowd of protesters in Los Angeles and was chased down and attacked by people in another vehicle Thursday night. The driver was detained by police.

The incident, at least the second Thursday night involving a vehicle and protesters in Los Angeles, happened in Hollywood around 9:30 p.m.

A crowd of several hundred people had gathered at Cahuenga and Hollywood boulevards to protest the Breonna Taylor case.

Most cars stopped for the crowd, but a white Prius tried to weave through the protesters to get by the intersection.

Several of the protesters appeared to surround the car and pound on it as it drove by. Several also chased after the vehicle on foot. There initially did not appear to be any protesters who were injured by the vehicle.

A black pickup truck filled with several people chased after the Prius and stopped in front of it, as a green Mustang pulled up behind it.

People in the truck and the Mustang got out and started attacking the vehicle and apparently attempting to get the driver out. People were also smashing on the exterior of the Prius.

The driver of the Prius managed to speed away from the scene and ran at least one red light in his attempt to get away.

Eventually police pulled over the vehicle on Santa Monica Boulevard and detained the driver.

Earlier in the evening, a pickup truck near Sunset and Seward ran through a group of people and injured at least two. One person was transported to the hospital by ambulance. A second person was transported in a personal vehicle.

Police caught up to the truck driver and pulled over the vehicle a few blocks from the scene.
