LOS ANGELES — At least one person was taken to a hospital Thursday night after multiple vehicles reportedly drove through a mob of Breonna Taylor demonstrators in Los Angeles, according to reports.

Chants of “F— these racist a– police!” turned to screams when a blue pickup truck — driving against the flow of demonstrators — struck at least one sign-holding person, who fell backward onto the street, KCAL reported.
