Driver intentionally hits pedestrians on drive around Bothell

One victim was taken to EvergreenHealth Medical Center.

A man who intentionally hit two female pedestrians on Friday is behind bars.

Bothell police Capt. Ken Seuberlich said at about 6 p.m., April 20, the suspect hit multiple people as he drove around downtown Bothell.

The suspect drove westbound on State Route 522 when he turned right on 101st Avenue Northeast and Main Street, where he hit a woman who was crossing a crosswalk with a male. The driver then turned left on Main Street and drove to State Route 527, where he struck another female in a crosswalk. He then turned right, going northbound on southbound lanes where he nearly struck three other pedestrians.

Bothell police stopped the suspect at Northeast 185th Street and SR 527, where he was taken into custody.

“He stated at the time of arrest that he struck them on purpose,” Seuberlich said, noting that police do not believe drugs or alcohol was involved at this time.

While none of the pedestrians were in critical condition, the first female the driver struck was transported to EvergreenHealth Medical Center. She suffered no broken bones, but was “pretty battered up,” Seuberlich said. The other woman may have seen a doctor but wasn’t transported to the hospital via an ambulance.

The suspect was charged with first-degree assault.
