One person is dead and another is in serious condition after a car drove onto a closed freeway in Seattle early Saturday and into people protesting police brutality, AP reports.
- "Summer Taylor, 24, of Seattle died Saturday evening at Harborview Medical Center, spokesperson Susan Gregg said."
Where it stands: The suspect, Dawit Kelete of Seattle, fled the scene after hitting the protesters and was later put in custody after another protester chased him for about a mile. He was charged with two counts of vehicular assault. Officials told AP they did not know whether it was a targeted attack, but the driver was not impaired.
