      (Reuters) – Two protesters were injured, one critically, in Seattle early on Saturday, when the women were hit by a speeding car that drove past other stopped vehicles into a crowd demonstrating on an interstate highway, police said.

      The driver of the car, a 27-year-old Seattle man, was arrested at the scene of the incident, which occurred at about 1:30 a.m. PDT (0830 GMT), and faces multiple felony charges, Washington State Patrol Trooper Chase Van Cleave said by phone.

      A video of the Seattle incident shared on social media shows a lone white car 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.

      The driver had a very expensive car for a 20-something, thinking a ferrari or something similar.

      Not a cheap car. $75,000 for a no frills basic a year old.

      Seems the filthy rich are not content with just looting our treasury, starving out millions, making millions homeless, destroying a nation’s public healthcare system, raping our children, promoting Nazis and letting cops kill us. They want to get hands on with the murdering.

      SEATTLE (AP) — One of two people hit by a man who drove his car onto a closed Seattle freeway and into a crowd protesting police brutality has died.

      Summer Taylor, 24, of Seattle died Saturday evening at Harborview Medical Center, spokesperson Susan Gregg said.

      Taylor and Diaz Love, 32, of Portland, Oregon, were hit by the car that barreled through a panicked crowd of protesters on Interstate 5 early Saturday morning, officials said.

      Dawit Kelete of Seattle drove the car around vehicles that were blocking I-5 and sped into the crowd about 1:40 a.m., according to a police report released by the Washington State Patrol. Video taken at the scene by protesters showed people shouting “Car! Car!” before fleeing the roadway.

      Well then. One affluenza defense coming up. The poor rich boy was in a hurry and those people got in his way! He was so used to being obeyed that he couldn’t help himself when they didn’t get out of the way fast enough, so it’s their fault.

      This is how most aristocrats really think, folks. That’s why the oligarchy must be destroyed.

      According to the police he was not impaired with drinking or drugs. He had to drive up a ramp the wrong way to get at those protesters.

      He was making money somewhere to afford that car. He could have inherited it. Affluenza can strike anyone.
