ND: 1 Injured After Armed Man Drives Truck Through Dakota Access Pipeline Protest

HeadlineNov 14, 2016
H14 nd armed man

In North Dakota, water protectors resisting the $3.8 billion Dakota Access pipeline say an armed white man drove his truck through a crowd of Native American protectors, running over one woman and then firing live bullets into the air, during a demonstration Saturday at a worksite near Mandan. Local authorities are investigating the incident. This comes after 37 people were arrested on Friday, as water protectors maintained multiple highway blockades. The Army Corps of Engineers is expected to make a decision within days about whether it will grant a permit allowing Energy Transfer Partners to drill underneath the Missouri River.
