Two women injured as auto drives through Seattle protest crowd

The suspect vehicle that struck two protesters on I-5 this morning. Investigation into motive and point of entry in to I-5 are still under investigation

The women, identified as Diaz Love, age 32 from Bellingham, and Summer Taylor, age 24 from Seattle, are hospitalized in intensive care.

But just before 2 a.m. Saturday a man drove his auto, a white Jaguar, around two vehicles parked as barriers and slammed into the demonstrators at a high rate of speed. He was able to stop him by pulling his auto in front of the Jaguar, Van Cleave said.

The driver has been taken into custody, according to Mead.

The vehicle was stopped and the driver was in custody, the State Patrol account tweeted.

Mead said the unnamed man faced multiple felony charges and was suspected to have driven the wrong way on an exit ramp. The man's motive was not immediately clear although impairment was not considered a factor.

Protests in Seattle have been ongoing in the wake of George Floyd's death in Minneapolis, which triggered a nationwide movement condemning police brutality and racial inequality.

Mead said at the press conference that protesters had shut down the interstate for 19 days in a row.

The State Patrol responded by closing sections of the interstate to keep drivers and protesters safe. He said he hoped demonstrators would cease what he called "unlawful behaviour".

A video of the Seattle incident shared on social media shows a lone white vehicle speeding up Interstate-5, swerving to avoid a van that was parked to block the roadway and heading toward a small group of panicked protesters who tried to scurry away.

"No one should risk their life for demanding better from our city, state and country", Durkan said on Twitter.

Police said protesters had been on the freeway for more than an hour before the auto drove around the blockade at around 1:36am.

The state patrol tweeted out two pictures of the driver's auto, a white Jaguar with significant damage to its bumper and windscreen.

Seattle police tweeted that they were assisting.
