EUGENE, Ore. -- The driver accused of hitting a black activist has been cited. 

Isiah Wagoner, 29, was hit by a car during a Black Unity children's march on June 28, at the corner of N. Adams and Clark streets.

According to Eugene Police, Travis Waleri has been cited for careless driving, failure to stop and remain stopped for a pedestrian, and driving the wrong way in a traffic circle in connection with the incident. Wagoner said that this citation does not do enough.

"The only thing that it proves is that undoubtedly a crime was committed," Wagoner said. "No one should be hit with citations if a crime wasn't committed. No one is going home and calling the police on themselves unless a crime was committed, which Travis Waleri did both."

This comes after the grand jury chose not to take the case to a trial after Wagoner alleged Waleri hit him on purpose.

The incident sparked nights of protests calling for Waleri's arrest.
