reported a false statement 👁 view in context

The problem? Local police think he was terrified of leftist protesters who were blocking traffic in the street when he accelerated his vehicle into the crowd, fatally injuring a yet unidentified heavyset 32-year-old woman.

This wasn't a statement from the police department, it was merely a couple of officers who were not on the scene and hadn't seen the video speculating on the possibilities in the immediate aftermath of the event. The reporter whose tweet is quoted below posted a clarification minutes later. "Just wanna clarify that 2 officers who I spoke to who said act might not have been intentional were not on the scene. Had not seen video yet"
