Car ploughs through crowd of pro-Trump counter-protesters in California as they clash with BLM rally (VIDEO)

Car ploughs through crowd of pro-Trump counter-protesters in California as they clash with BLM rally (VIDEO)
A video has captured the moment a car pushes through a crowd of apparent supporters of US President Donald Trump in Yorba Linda, California after they reportedly squared off with Black Lives Matter protesters.

Footage of the incident, which took place on Saturday afternoon in Yorba Linda, a suburban city in northeastern Orange County, shows a white car driving through a group of people, some of them carrying American flags and pro-Trump banners.

Before the car starts off, a man who can be seen wearing an American flag as a mask and a black hat appears to be taking photos of the vehicle while standing right in front of it.

The activists attempt to chase after the sedan but were stopped by police, who were present en masse at the scene in anticipation of a potential fracas between the rival groups.

Officers can be seen pulling the vehicle over in the video.

Local media reported, citing police, that the female driver of the vehicle was taken into custody. It’s unclear if she is facing any charges.

Several people were injured in the incident, including a middle-aged man who was seen bleeding from his knee. It appeared that his ankle was broken.

The incident unfolded in the parking lot of the city library, reportedly after pro-Trump counter-protesters crossed over from the other side of the road and engaged BLM supporters.
