Hours after Donald Trump became president-elect, spontaneous protests erupted early Wednesday in Oakland as demonstrators sought to block freeways in the city.
A protestor was struck by a vehicle on the eastbound lanes of Highway 24 although it was not immediately clear what the extent of the victim’s injuries were.
Up to 100 people were said to have gathered in downtown Oakland to protest the results. Many spectators had gathered on Telegraph Avenue and continue to march. BART has shut down the 12th street station in downtown Oakland as a result.
We are hearing reports of broken windows and cars on fire.
