Hundreds of California college students protest election results overnight

- Almost as soon as Hillary Clinton conceded, California college students marched in protest of Donald Trump's victory.

Several hundred students were protesting the presidential election results early Wednesday on UCLA's campus in Westwood.

The crowd of about 500 was gathered on the campus late Tuesday night as they watched the election results at the Wilson Plaza, according to Sgt. Miguel Banuelos of the UCLA Police Department.

Other than a lot of noise, Banuelos said the protest was peaceful and students were behaved.

"There's nothing destructive,'' Banuelos said. "Just students exercising their First Amendment right. We're just monitoring them but they've been fully cooperative.''

Banuelos said the protest was contained to the UCLA campus.

Meanwhile, over a thousand UC San Diego students protested Donald Trump's victory through the streets near the La Jolla campus Wednesday, and one female was struck by a car as the protest spilled onto the freeway.

The student was protesting on the Interstate 5 freeway onramp at La Jolla Village Drive and was struck by a car shortly after 1:30 a.m. The CHP received a report that the woman was knocked unconscious.

The injured woman was rushed to Scripps Memorial Hospital La Jolla to be treated, according to the CHP.
