RENO, Nevada – A protest by Native Americans in Nevada took a dangerous turn as a truck plowed into the group.

On Monday, dozens of protesters took to the streets in Reno to protest the celebration of Columbus Day.

At one point, protesters left the sidewalk and began marching in the streets, forcing vehicles to stop or go into the opposite lanes of traffic to avoid the protesters.

One truck pulled up to the protesters, telling them to move out of the way.  Police tell KRNV that there was some sort of altercation that resulted in the truck driving through the group.

One protester recorded the incident on Facebook Live.

According to the Associated Press, one woman remains in the hospital on Tuesday with non-life threatening injuries. Four others suffered minor injuries.

At this point, no arrests have been made and no charges have been filed.

Sgt. James Pitsnogel, with the Reno Police Department, said the driver and a passenger were interviewed and are cooperating. Police say the driver fled the scene, but stopped several blocks away and called them to tell his side of the story.

However, Mike Graham, the founder of the Oklahoma-based United Native American Association, said he plans to meet with Reno police on Tuesday to find out more about the incident.
