Ferguson spokesman Jeff Small made it clear the driver did not intentionally hit the Black Lives Matter activist saying:
“By all accounts, her version of what happened seems to fit the version of what happened to a person driving down a busy West Florissant Avenue and not seeing a person standing there.”
