The graphic video shows a man arguing with protesters blocking a street in the city of Morelia. Objects are thrown and one demonstrator kicks the man.

The man then gets in his SUV, which is parked on the sidewalk, and pulls into the street. He drives into the crowd, circles back and drives through it again:

None of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening, according to reports.

The students were reportedly protesting for better access to education.

The driver of the SUV was later found and arrested for the incident.
