SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A woman is suing UC San Diego after being struck by a car on the 5 Freeway during a political protest in 2016, according to KTLA.

In the lawsuit, the woman is claiming failure to contain the demonstration and prevent a dangerous situation.

19-year-old Maria Ana Carrola Flores filed the lawsuit against the university, the driver of the vehicle, the City of San Diego and the state.
