Passenger killed by crowd when driver hits child

How does the crowd justify killing a man who had nothing to do with the accident?

A crowd attacked and killed a passenger in a vehicle that had struck and injured a child, police said Wednesday.

Police believe 2,000 to 3,000 people were in the area for a Juneteenth celebration when the attack occurred Tuesday night. The man who was killed had been trying to stop the group from attacking the vehicle's driver when the crowd turned on him, authorities said.


The driver was able to get away is cooperating with investigators, police said.

When I saw the title of this article I thought the crowd killed the driver. It's shocking the driver lives and his passenger is killed.
