SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - Hundreds of students took to the streets in La Jolla to protest the victory of president-elect Donald Trump. 

UCSD students gathered in protest yelling profanities. They say they're voicing their frustration against Trump and say that's not who they voted for. 

Part of the large group walked onto the southbound I-5 lanes at La Jolla Village Drive and one person was hit by a car. The student was rushed to a local hospital and is expected to recover.

On the heels of a restless morning, students say they want change, while Trump supporters believe he will 'Make America Great Again.' 

Some say they're angry because they believe Trump does not embody the middle class or supports minority causes. They also say they're worried about their student loan debt. 

"Donald Trump what is he going to do? He is a self-entitled rich billionaire who's been rich his entire life. He doesn't understand the middle class," Hannah Tran, USCD student said.
"I've been waiting for this thing for a long time and I'm so happy I can hardly stand it," said Lynne Kahl, Trump Supporter.

Police says at least 500 people swarmed on streets in and around UCLA early Wednesday morning, some shouting anti-Trump expletives. There were no immediate arrests.

Smaller demonstrators were held at University of California campuses and neighborhoods in Berkeley, Irvine and Davis and at San Jose State.

In Oakland, more than 100 protesters took to downtown streets. KNTV-TV reported that protesters burned Trump in effigy, smashed windows of the Oakland Tribune newsroom and set tires and trash on fire.
