Vehicle plows into crowd of demonstrators during fast food worker strike in Flint

Multiple people were hit by a car during a fast food worker strike in Flint, according to WJRT. 

WJRT reports that the vehicle drove into the crowd of people protesting at a McDonalds at Dort and Lapeer in Flint.

Workers were taking part in a rally demanding the fast food industry raise the minimum wage to $15 an hour.  

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Gretchen Whitmer attended the rally and said she was "incredibly sad" to see so many people hurt.
