Police in Seattle have taken into custody the driver of a car that struck two women during a protest on a downtown stretch of Interstate 5 late Friday, leaving one of the victims in critical condition, according to media reports.

Washington State Patrol spokesperson Trooper Rick Johnson said early Saturday that the car, which apparently entered the closed freeway through an off-ramp, plowed into "multiple pedestrians" shortly before midnight. 

Washington State Patrol Capt. Ron Mead said a 24-year-old woman from Seattle has critical, life-threatening injuries and a 32-year-old woman from Bellingham has serious injuries.
