One person was killed and another has been hospitalized and remains in serious condition after a car drove onto a closed freeway during a protest against police brutality in Seattle, Washington, early Saturday. The victim, 24-year-old Summer Taylor, died Saturday evening at Harborview Medical Center, a hospital spokeswoman said. Washington State Patrol said Saturday that the driver, a 27-year-old man, is in custody. Police have not offered a motive yet, but the suspect was not impaired. At a news conference Saturday, Capt. Ron Mead did not explain how the driver bypassed a police closure to reach the victims, but he said he hopes the incident will mean protesters "reconsider their desire to be on the interstate" because "I cannot guarantee their safety, plain and simple."
