Driver arrested after plowing into group of protesters

(WPXI) Protesters shut down roads in North Versailles and East Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania Sunday, demanding justice for Antwon Rose.

The 17-year-old was shot and killed last month by East Pittsburgh police officer Michael Rosfeld.

A short time after the peaceful protest started, it took a dangerous turn when a driver plowed through the group.

Demonstrators say five people were hit. One person was taken to the hospital and the driver was arrested.

The march continued, shutting down traffic at an intersection near a shopping plaza in North Versailles, then came back across the Westinghouse Bridge into East Pittsburgh, where protesters stood in front of the home of the chief of police, calling for Rosfeld's bond to be revoked. 

The condition of the protester sent to the hospital is unknown.
