Single Pedestrian Injured After Vehicle Contact During Friday Night Protest
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (Friday, June 24, 2022 - 9:55 p.m.)
Cedar Rapids, IA – At approximately 7:17 p.m. on Friday, June 24, 2022, a single pedestrian was injured by contact with a vehicle in the area of 8th Avenue and 2nd Street SE in Cedar Rapids.
Preliminary investigations indicate a group of protesters were attempting to legally cross the street in front of the Federal Courthouse when the traffic lights changed, giving right of way to vehicles on 8th Avenue. Following verbal confrontations between the protestors and a driver, contact was made between a vehicle and one of the pedestrians.
Cedar Rapids Police quickly responded to the scene. The injured pedestrian was interviewed on-scene by CRPD and then taken by private vehicle to a local hospital for evaluation. The driver of the vehicle was also voluntarily interviewed by Cedar Rapids Police.
Injury to the pedestrian appears to be minor. Cedar Rapids Police are canvasing the scene to obtain potential surveillance video and more information will be made available when possible.

Yes and if I'm driving into the intersection and the light turns yellow I can proceed through the intersection but if I slow to a crawl and take all the time to the point that the light recycles and all the cross traffic has to wait for me, then the traffic behind me follows my lead, then cross traffic can never move. Legal according to you...What? If you are in the middle of a crosswalk when the light turns you are not a jaywalker.
Where did I say it was complete? I took what I saw and what I know about protests and have my view of what happenedYou seemed to believe it was. I was saying in this thread to wait until more facts came out. You apparently can't. The police have stated that the protestors were crossing legally.

Holding up traffic just like the Freedom(sic) truckers did.There were reports of cars waiting for three green / red light changes before this incident took place.
The protestors must have believed they were entitled to obstruct traffic at their convenience. Of course they have no such right to do so. But they think they do. Why?
Some of them appear to have taken it upon themselves to play traffic cop and jump in front of and stay in front of a moving truck while the truck had the green light. Not smart.
Yes to people in general walking around obliviously and to likely a lot of stupid overall.To be fair, people in general have an annoying tendency to walk where they want regardless of traffic, expecting the cars will move for them. Not really specific to protestors.
no idea what truly happened here, where this driver was trying to edge his way thru a crowd that was barely paying attention to traffic as they crossed streets, if people legit jumped in front of the truck, etc. likely a lot of stupid involved overall.
I know. There is a law specifically crafted for this situation and precious little of it has been mentioned.The 2021 “ back the blue “ law give drivers immunity when moving through protesters if they use due caution as he did. The law is on the side of the truck driver…

The Sam's Club here is so busy there is many times a continuous stream in and out of the store. To negotiate this I'll have to start, stop, wave someone or some family through, swing a little bit out or in ....
But I guarantee if some contact was ever made it would be them walking into my stopped vehicle. I'm that cautious as many other drivers must be who do the same. Pedestrians increasingly are alarmingly oblivious, especially the cell phone addicted.

I don't know either but KCRG had a lawyer chime in on it, but from a civil law pov.Has this law, or others like it elsewhere been challenged yet? I question whether or not driver who deliberately drives into a crowd of protestors on a street could really be legally justified in doing so.
doesn't there need to be an actual injury for lawsuit as well? I mean if I get rear ended in my car, I can't sue if I have no injuries. Or can I say I emotional injuriesI don't know either but KCRG had a lawyer chime in on it, but from a civil law pov.
