Seattle officials release video of man and woman hit by car in road rage incident


The King County District Attorney’s Office released video of a man and woman being hit by a car in an apparent road rage incident on April 17 at Seattle’s Pike Place Market.

Authorities say the incident began when two people in a Toyota SUV and a pickup truck got into a fight, according to KIRO. The driver of the van threw water in the direction of the driver of the Toyota, and witnesses said things got physical at the time.

The 32-year-old Toyota SUV driver pushed the 45-year-old pickup truck driver to the ground and began to drive away, police say.

The driver of the van then got up and punched the 32-year-old through his car window, according to the report.

A 54-year-old Mazda driver then got out of his car and smashed the rear window of the Toyota, and the 32-year-old retaliated by also smashing a windshield.

The 54-year-old drove his Mazda into the 32-year-old man and another woman, according to the report, who was working nearby. He was charged with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon, according to 770KTTH.
