Driver who hit Seattle protesters charged with 3 felonies
Seattle police finally figured out that the freeway was for cars and not protesters. What a concept.

Snip - The state patrol had closed a section of I-5 for 19 days in a row because of the protesters, troopers said. Going forward, officials said they won’t allow protesters to enter I-5 and will arrest pedestrians on the freeway.

Snip - Kelete’s lawyer, John Henry Browne, said his client, who is Black, did not intentionally hit the protesters.

Snip - Kelete is originally from Eritrea, in northeastern Africa, and is a U.S. citizen, Browne said. He lives with his parents in Seattle, and they’re very religious, he said.

A message seeking comment from Black Lives Matter Seattle-King County said they have no comment on the charges.

Kelete was the owner of the Jaguar XJL and was alone in the car, according to the state patrol.
