BLM protesters hit by car on I-5 in downtown Seattle

Two female BLM protesters were hit by a car on I-5 in downtown Seattle at around 1:30am Saturday morning.

Reports said one patient is in critical condition and the other is in stable condition.

The Washington State Patrol said the driver may have entered the freeway through an off-ramp to avoid barriers that were set up in place by Black Lives Matter protesters.

The driver was taken into custody. WSP is still investigating if he specifically targeted the protesters.

One witness called it a ‘purposeful attack.’
