At approximately 4:55 pm, a white passenger vehicle driving at a high rate of speed came from the south on Hwy 1806 and crashed into the jersey barriers forming a barricade on the north end of the Backwater Bridge.  Other individuals from the protest camp came to the bridge shortly after the crash occurred and provided assistance to the driver.  Law enforcement officers responded to the barricade and were informed by some of the individuals that this was a deliberate act but this has not been confirmed.  The officers were also told that the driver was going to be taken to a hospital but the nature and extent of injuries is unknown.  The incident remains under investigation.
