Protesters gathered in New York's Time Square on Thursday (September 3) evening when a vehicle plowed through, hitting several pedestrians and bicyclists.

Many observers noted on social media that the vehicle - a black Ford Taurus sedan with NY plates and tinted windows - shares several of the features of an unmarked police cruiser, but the NYPD swiftly took to Twitter to refute that claim.

The police told WABC that the driver was involved in a separate rally to support President Donald Trump that crossed paths with the Black Lives Matter protesters, who were demanding justice for Daniel Prude, a Black man who died after an arrest in Rochester, New York, in March. Video from the incident shows officers putting a hood on the man's head and shoving his face into the ground while he was naked and handcuffed.

This is a developing story.

Once the vehicle surpassed the crowd, it sped off and "very dangerously as it hits a block or two after goes up and makes a right", Shea said.

"There is an ongoing investigation into an incident in Times Square involving a black Taurus sedan".

The NYPD tweeted they were looking for the auto - a black Ford Taurus with a bull bar in front - and have asked that anyone with injuries come forward.

Authorities are now asking for the driver of the vehicle to come forward. "He hit me straight on and kept going", a cyclist who asked to be identified by only his first name, Rob, told the Daily News. "My knee is bad and my bike is ruined". Since the end of May, a wave of street protests and riots against racism and police violence has swept in the United States after the death in Minneapolis in the detention of African-American George Floyd by police.
