The activist, Wanda Cleveland, 61, was there to remember the death of an unarmed black man at the hands of Sacramento police officers. But during the vigil for Stephon Clark, she was struck by a Sacramento County Sheriff Department vehicle.
The collision occurred on Saturday night. One video shared on Twitter shows people carrying signs of protest around sheriff vehicles. A voice on a megaphone says, “Back away from my vehicle” four times. Another voice can be heard saying, “Back away from my car” before the activist is knocked down to the curb.
