Longview police believe a 15-year-old Kelso boy ran down a 28-year-old man in an act of gang violence.
The Daily News of Longview reported that police arrested the teen Saturday night on suspicion of attempted murder.
Police said the victim and a woman had left a pub early Saturday and entered an alley when occupants of a van shouted something obscene about the color red, identified with a street gang.
The woman said the van turned around and sped at them with the lights off, knocking the man through the air. He was taken to a Portland hospital with a broken leg and internal injuries.
