Multiple eye-witnesses report that Isiah Wagoner, 29, a leader of the activist group Black Unity, was intentionally struck by Travis Paul Waleri, 34, driving a white Subaru during a Children’s March on Sunday, June 28, 2020.
Wagoner was taken to PeaceHealth Riverbend and later sent home to recover from injuries he sustained. Waleri was later detained by police as part of an investigation.
Black Unity held a march on Friday, July 3, 2020, to demand justice for member Wagoner. Eugene Mayor Lucy Vinis denounced acts of violence.
BEST is looking into an increase in the “weaponization of vehicles.”
