MINNEAPOLIS (KARE)- No one was injured when a semi-truck driver drove through a crowd of on-foot protesters on Interstate 35W Sunday evening.

According to the Minnesota Department of Public Safety, the truck driver was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.

He has been arrested."Very disturbing actions by a truck driver ... inciting a crowd of peaceful demonstrators," DPS posted on Twitter. "It doesn't appear any protesters were hit by the truck."

A witness said he saw a truck "barreling down, blaring its horn" without appearing to have any intention of stopping, as protesters gathered peacefully on Interstate 35W.
