One person was hit by a car during a morning picket outside the DuPont plant on River Road in Tonawanda.

Around 6:45 a.m. witnesses tell 7 Eyewitness News an SUV drove "aggressively" toward the picket line, and lunged forward, hitting someone.  We don't know how badly that person was hurt but we do know Twin City Ambulance was called to check the person out.  Police are now investigating

The picket is happening today and tomorrow as the United Steelworkers Union negotiates with DuPont.
