Johnson City PD Seeking Hit-and-Run Suspect from BLM Protest

Police in Johnson City are looking for the driver involved in a hit-and-run during a Black Lives Matter protest over the weekend. Officials say a white Ford Expedition with North Carolina tags hit the pedestrian and fled the scene Saturday night.

Police say multiple videos were provided by witnesses and from surrounding businesses and traffic cameras. Investigators announced Sunday night that they had identified the vehicle and person of interest. They’re working with authorities from North Carolina on the case.

Cellphone video from the incident shows two protesters getting hit. Demonstrators were marching in front of the Johnson City Police Department. One of the organizers tells the Johnson City Press the driver began inching forward trying to get past them. The man then pulled forward hitting two people and running over one.
