Golden Gate Bridge anti-COVID vax rally injures five, including two cops

A car struck two cops and three Golden Gate Bridge workers as authorities tried to corral an anti-COVID vaccine protest at the famous San Francisco span Thursday evening.

Several hundred demonstrators were rallying against the city’s employment vaccine mandate at the mouth of the bridge when the victims were struck by a car in the traffic lane, according to The San Francisco Chronicle.

The two CHP officers and one bridge worker were taken to a hospital, where they were expected to survive their injuries, the newspaper reported.

“They were gathered at the sidewalk entrance onto the Golden Gate Bridge, and apparently there were individuals in the crowd that had stated their intent was to take over the lane of traffic, so our intention at that point was to serve as a deterrent to try to prevent anybody from getting on,” CHP Officer Andrew Barclay reportedly said.
