The driver and passenger of a Jeep Wrangler that barreled through a group of Black Lives Matter protest in Colorado last week and was shot at said they were just lost and trying to get to a local airport before they got accidentally caught in the melee.

The speeding vehicle caused one woman to fall off the road and others to jump out of the way on a stretch of highway in Aurora, Colorado on July 25, according to KDVR, a local Fox News affiliate in Denver.

The scene became even more chaotic after the crowd began throwing rocks and projectiles at the Jeep, which crashed into another vehicle. One man then opened fire, authorities said.

The driver wasn’t targeting Black Lives Matter protesters, claims passenger Gregory Goodenough.

Goodenough was on his way to the airport to catch a flight to San Jose, California when the GPS directed them onto a highway that had been closed to accommodate the protest, he said.

‘We did notice that there were Black Lives Matter protesters on all sides of the street trying to stop traffic.’ said Goodenough in a two-minute long video posted to YouTube. ‘We then avoided any pedestrians in the roadways and continued onto the freeway. There was no police barricade that stopped us.”

Investigators are still probing how the Jeep got onto the highway when access roads were shut down.

Demonstrators surrounded the Jeep, throwing “projectiles,” using bats “to damage the vehicle,” and opening fire seven times, Goodenough said. Authorities said two people were hurt.
