Footage picking up traction online showed a car barreling through a crowd of people as they marched in Milwaukee on Saturday in efforts to put a stop violence in their community.

In footage obtained by a local Fox station, a group of peaceful demonstrators are seen marching down the middle of a street when a car suddenly charged toward them.

As the car dived toward the crowd, children could be seen jumping out of the way and man appeared to try to run down the car before it sped down the road.

One protester could also be heard yelling “stop the violence” moments after.

According to the local station, the driver of the vehicle had gotten into a minor collision with another vehicle and sped off into the crowd.

No injuries have yet been reported. According to the outlet, nearly 40 people marched in the protest.

The report comes just over week after two young mothers from Chicago involved in local efforts to tamp down violence in their local community were killed in a drive-by shooting.

The young mothers, Chantel Grant and Andrea Stoudemire, were fatally shot at a corner where members of Mothers/Men Against Senseless Killings, a group they volunteered with, had been known to gather.
