An SUV carrying Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds hit a Black Lives Matter protester who was trying to block her vehicle as she was leaving an event in northern Iowa.

The Iowa State Patrol confirmed that the SUV hit the protester, who was among about two dozen Black Lives Matter protesters who had traveled 90 miles from Des Moines to Ackley.

Members of the group weren’t allowed into the Tuesday event at Family Traditions Meat, a small processor, so they gathered at the end of a driveway to block the governor’s car.

Jaylen Cavil told the Des Moines Register that he wasn't hurt but that he was shocked the governor's SUV hit him.

“I 100% think they intentionally hit me," Cavil said.
