SEATTLE (AP) — A judge set bail at $1.2 million on Monday for the man accused of driving a Jaguar on to a closed Seattle freeway and hitting two protesters, killing one.
Police say Dawit Kelete, who is Black, drove the car around vehicles that were parked on Interstate 5 to protect a group of Black Femme March demonstrators.
They say he hit two people and sped away early Saturday.
He was taken into custody, and a judge found probable cause to hold Kelete on an investigation of vehicular assault.
He is scheduled to be charged Wednesday.
