A protester against pension reform caused an accident by distracting the driver of a police truck, who rammed his colleagues.
The demonstrations continued this Thursday in Paris, as well as on the boulevard du Montparnasse, where a filmed scene has since made the rounds of social networks.
Racking up more than 4 million views on Twitter, the video footage shows a protester pretending to control traffic, as he signals a series of police trucks to move forward.
The man obviously distracted the driver of one of the trucks, who did not notice that the trucks ahead of him had slowed down.
As a result, he crashed into the van ahead of him.
