Two men are in serious condition tonight after being knocked over with a vehicle by a man they confronted about speeding down a private driveway in Olympia.
The victims – a 70-year-old Olympia man and a 37-year-old Rainier man – are hospitalized in serious condition. The 24-year-old driver was arrested on suspicion of vehicular assault.
The men had been attending a scout meeting off Southbay Road when they stopped the driver of a 1990 Subaru Legacy and told him they were going to call law enforcement, State Patrol Trooper Guy Gill said.
While speaking with the men, who were standing by the driver’s door, the driver suddenly put the Subaru in reverse and knocked the men over with the door.
Troopers found the driver nearby and took him into custody.
