Washington State Patrol Captain Ron Mead said one suspect faces multiple heavy charges.
At 1:30 am on Saturday, a few blocks away, the car got into a group of protesters in an episode that WSP closed until midnight. Mead said a car was being driven around a series of “support vehicles” that protesters used to block and protect themselves, and on the shoulder of the protesters stopped.
Trooper Rick Johnson, with a tweet, “A vehicle passed through the cover and hit multiple pedestrians on the highway.” Said.
Some protesters scattered to avoid being hit, but “unfortunately, they were hit by two vehicles,” Mead said at a press conference.
A 24-year-old woman from Seattle suffered life-threatening injuries. Mead reported that a 32-year-old woman from Bellingham in Washington was seriously injured and in a steady state. The Seattle Fire Department said that with a tweet, they were both taken to the Harbourview Medical Center.
Mead, a 27-year-old Seattlel suspect, was given an appeal test and showed no signs of deterioration, but WSP said it is continuing to investigate.
When asked if this was a “targeted attack”, Mead said, “We don’t know about it, this remains the focus of our research.” Said.
Mead said that the driver should be booked at King County Prison Saturday morning. He has not been charged.
Average, possible charges include vehicle attack and heavy blow and escape.
Mead added that the highway is not a safe place for pedestrians.
“Whether you are a protester, homeless people, or drivers are torn apart, the highway is not a safe place for pedestrians, and we said it resolutely,” he said. “My hope is a result of this tragedy, the protesters will reassess their desire to be interstate because I cannot guarantee their security simply and simply.”
