The group went up to the car at an intersection and began attacking it, and someone jumped on the hood and smashed the windshield, San Diego police said.

The family, which includes two small children and every member of which is deaf, became frightened and tried to drive off, hitting a woman who was not part of the march in the process. The woman was hospitalized with a possible broken arm. Police made no arrests but are investigating the incident.
