Two Occupy Protesters in Oakland Struck by Vehicle (Correction)

I had originally cited that a Occupy protester, in Oakland had been struck by a motorist, and had died. The reports were coming from various sources on Twitter. I messaged the local CBS station in the Bay Area, to ask them to confirm the report. The replied that KCBS reporter, Chris Filippi, had reported that.

Fortunately, it was a misunderstanding. Filippi (@chrisfilippi) Has retweeted a posting stating that the area hospital where this person, and another lady who was also struck, were there with "non life threatening conditions."

Filippi reports that the motorist was questioned and released.

I apologize for the misinformation i had originally posted in this blog.
