Two women have been hospitalized, one with life-threatening injuries, after a vehicle barreled past a police barrier and into protesters on a freeway overnight in Seattle.
Washington State Patrol said Saturday that the driver of the white Jaguar sedan, a 27-year-old man, is now in custody. At this point officers have refrained from assigning a motive, pending an investigation — though Capt. Ron Mead said officers believe the unnamed suspect was not impaired.
At a news conference early Saturday, Mead did not offer further details on how authorities believe the man bypassed a police closure to reach the victims. But he warned that the incident offers a stark lesson for protesters.
"My hope is, as a result of this tragedy, protesters will reconsider their desire to be on the interstate," he said, "because I cannot guarantee their safety, plain and simple."
