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

In footage obtained by a local Fox station, a group of peaceful demonstrators can be seen marching in the middle of a street when a car suddenly charges toward them.

As the car drives toward the crowd, children can be seen jumping out of the way, and a man appears to try to run down the car before it speeds off down the road.

Moments later, one protester can be heard yelling, "Stop the violence!"

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 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.
