LA JOLLA, Calif. – Hundreds of students poured into the streets around the University of California, San Diego, overnight Tuesday following Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential election. 

 
At around midnight, hundreds of students began marching and chanting as they made their way through campus and onto Interstate 5 near La Jolla Village Drive Bridge, shutting down traffic as they walked in the freeway.
 
Sometime after 1 a.m., a UCSD fresman protester was struck and injured by a car on the freeway. She was taken to a local hospital with a broken leg, a school official confirmed. She was in stable condition.  
 
Eventually the crowd dispersed. There were no arrests.
