It doesn't appear any protesters were hit by the truck, the Minnesota Department of Public Safety said.

Minnesota Department of Transportation traffic camera video captured the crowd scatter right before the vehicle came. The semi-truck appeared to be hauling some sort of fuel.

After the truck came to a stop, people swarmed the cab.

The driver suffered injuries that were not considered life-threatening and was taken to the hospital. He was later released from medical care and is in police custody now.

Vechirko has been booked in the Hennepin County Jail.

He worked as an independent contractor for Ken Advantage, a trucking company.
