DENVER (AP) - Court records show that a driver who hit a bicycle police officer with his car during a student protest in Denver appeared to have been having a seizure at the time and was unresponsive when emergency crews arrived.

The Denver Post reports (http://dpo.st/14YvGw6 ) the 41-year-old man had a history of seizures and told investigators he didn’t remember the Dec. 3 crash that seriously injured Officer John Adsit.

Adsit and three other officers were hit as they monitored a protest of hundreds of students from Denver’s East High School. The students were protesting a decision not to prosecute a police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, in the death of an unarmed black man.

According to court records, one of the students told investigators he saw the driver convulsing in his car after striking the officers.
