A man was arrested on suspicion of vehicular assault Thursday after he intentionally struck two men who'd complained about his speeding, sending them to the hospital, police said.
The two – a 70-year-old Olympia man and a 37-year-old Rainier man – were in serious condition Thursday night.
The men had been attending a Scouting meeting off Southbay Road when they stopped the 24-year-old driver of a 1990 Subaru Legacy who was speeding down a private driveway 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, Gill said.
Troopers found the suspect nearby and took him into custody.
